Pauline and Bob are the ideal hosts, the arrival gift of the milk and freshly laid eggs were very welcome. I can't recommend this property highly enough, we will definitely return.

Lovely touches around the cottage, really made the difference. The only thing I would change is there are sharp tacs coming through the stairs carpet I think from the gripper caught me and my partner a few times but apart from that a lovely stay. Would recommend to a couple for a get away
