Your welcome is genuine and warm. This was our third visit and the cottage was as magical as our first visit. We feel at home straight away and didnt want to leave. The dogs enjoyed the garden and loved running on the beach. We loved the comfy bed and enjoyed a restful sleep. We will be back in 2017.
