Peaceful and comfortable break.

4 of 5
We had a lovely and comfortable stay at the farm. The cottage was well equipped, modern and comfortable. The location was inland, but easily accessible to Beaches and attractions. We were welcomed with a homemade cake and fresh picked flowers, which i thought was a nice touch. p.s the cake was amazing.
