                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      We found this to be very comfortable and well-equipped; it is on the edge of the village, just a few minutes level walk to the shops and cafes. The development is partly holiday lets and partly permanent residents, which perhaps should be advertised, as there were 2 dogs in residence while we were there. Not everyone is happy with them in close proximity (not us, we both love dogs). The cottage is advertised for 6 and there are certainly beds for 6, and plenty of crockery etc.. But we thought it would be a bit small for more than 4, (there were 2 of us) and the fridge would not be adequate. Not everyone wants to shop every day, even when self-catering. It is not the property on the end of the building, but the adjacent one, in the corner.
