Could easily fit a family of up to four too. Lots of lovely touches to the cottage and a real place for respite! We loved our stay and found Verity welcoming and friendly. Would happily re commend to anyone :)

Booked this for a valentine break only to find the decor was a romantic red theme! Perfect!
