A smashing little cottage with everything you need on a self catering holiday.

5 of 5
The cottage along with it's location was ideal for that relaxing break. The added extras like bread and milk being brought in ready for your stay was a nice touch and much appreciated. The cottage was clean and had plenty of space for the four of us and our dogs. The location great for walkers as it's close to many foot paths and trails.
