The cottage had everything you could possibly need. There was so much information given we planned out weekend from the comfort of the cottage. The seals at horsey gap are something not to be missed, we took the short walk to the pub which was very friendly and went to Winterton on Sea for a lovely carvery. The views from the cottage are lovely especially the lake and I feel the owners have thought of everything. We will be visiting again.

Both Boris and Tim are perfect hosts and have toiled endlessly to restore this beautiful house back to its former glory. Having completed 90% of the restoration we can't wait to return in 2017 to see the finished result. Paul and Vicky
