Good original cottage features and garden out the back to get the last of the day's sun.

The cottage itself is spacious, warm and well equipped. The rooms are serene and stylish and the bedrooms all have views of the treetops - a welcome change from London! The kitchen is incredibly well laid out making cooking and chatting super easy! They also have a fire in the living room which makes the evenings lovely and cosy. The cottage is also in a fantastic location. We did so many great walks nearby- the scenery is stunning and the beaches are just gorgeous. And in terms of places to eat we had some delicious meals in pubs only a few mins away. I am already planning my next visit!
