We experienced a very wet spell of weather which meant we spent more time indoors than we expected to and would have liked to watch either dramas or a film in the evening.

It was ideally located 2 minutes from the town centre ,near local restaurant's and pubs offering excellent food. We are looking to return again. A first class cottage
