Claire and Chris were friendly, welcoming and unobtrusive. The cottage is beautiful, a converted barn which has real warmth and a very homely feel, whilst being stylishly decorated. It's well equipped, super clean and in a beautiful location - the views of the surrounding area are stunning. Highly suitable for anyone who loves walking then returning to a home from home. We didn't want to leave.
