Beautiful cottage, ideal location

5 of 5
The weather was the only spoiler and even that brightened up as the week went on. The location was perfect for what we wanted - open spaces, beach walks for the dogs. The cottage was very comfortable, so much space, warm and well equipped. No bad points about this property. Nicki was very helpful on day one and was there when we left on our last morning. Really enjoyed our stay and have no hesitation in recommending this property.
