We absolutely love it! The cottage, its garden and the location are beautiful. It is well furnished and maintained and has everything you need. Karen is the perfect host - really lovely to deal with, genuinely interested in ensuring you have a great time and very responsive. This time we were celebrating my sister's birthday and Karen kindly left a birthday wishes note and a couple of special food and drink items for her as a surprise which she was delighted with. Once again thanks for everything Karen. We hope to be back for many years to come!
