The cottage has everything you need and is pristine and very comfortable, warm and cosy. Verity has skimped on nothing, and she's a really lovely lady too. We had a lovely time yet again and hope to go back again.Such a lovely place to stay (especially when the sun shines!). Can't praise her and her cottage highly enough. Thank you Verity.

The welcome pack was a great touch. This is a prime example of how to run rental accommodation we had all we needed and great communication from the owners. Will definitely stay again
