The cottage has everything you could possibly need and more! Little touches like dishwasher tablets, cleaning cloths and wrapping foil... All brought from home but were available in the cottage. The welcome pack was awesome... From jam to savoury snacks , homemade flapjacks and not forgetting the wine! Loved being asked our preferences for bread, milk, butter and wine. Such a thoughtful gesture and one we've never been asked before in all the properties we've stayed in. Chris and Jags are delightful hosts and always on hand if you need them but without being 'in your face'. Was lovely to chat with them about life in general plus what we had got up to during the day. The weather was gorgeous and we were very busy during the day so it was lovely to come home weary from our adventures and relax in luxury. Would highly recommend the Coach house and hope to revisit again in the future. Don't change anything Chris and Jags...it's perfect!

The only downsidesolution were that it was a little cold, and that the fire alarms were very very sensitive!

The unit was absolutely spotless, the grounds well kept and the staff friendly, but what made this place extra special was all the thoughtful attention to detail. The milk already in the fridge on arrival. They have spent lots of time creating information about the area for people and how long the journey was to each place, if you could takes dogs (which we did have), toilets, accessibility, etc. When we hired a barbecue they made sure to include matches and a wire grill brush...just the thoughtful bits we hadn't bought at the shop. Access to the local club was fantastic as there were loads of facilities to use. Overall, we would use this place again and recommend it.
