The cottage is perfect, spotlessly clean, wonderfully maintained, comfy furnishing, definitely ticked all the right boxes. Great selection of cooking and washing facilities, previous people or the owner had left a good selection of store cupboard condiments and washing products, which is very helpful. The patio decking looks over the nature reserve and lake, if you look carefully you can see the wildfowl. To hear them quacking and cooing all day is very relaxing; makes a change from listening to cars. Parking was plentiful and other people staying in the cul-de-sac all very friendly and polite. We took my oldish parents who thoroughly enjoyed the cottage and the Isle of Wight, the downstairs shower made things so much easier. TV's in the main bedrooms and lounge was just like home from home. All in all perfect, will definitely be returning.
