We are always made very welcome by Diana and Keith and the cottage is immaculately clean and well furnished and equipped. There is lots to see and do and we continue to find new places as well as exploring our old favourites. Good weather always helps but there are plenty of books, DVDs and games for those times when the weather is really too bad.
