It proved to be the perfect base as he worked through his residency and employment documentation, found a flat to rent, purchased a car, etc. The cottage is very well equipped, very comfortable and clean, and most importantly in January it was lovely and warm with plenty of hot water for showers. The wifi is fast and reliable which was very important for our searching and communication. Local shops, restaurants and pubs are just a short walk away, with a major supermarket only 5 minutes drive. Jenny and Martin were very welcoming and assisted us with a lot of local knowledge, answering many questions relating to my son getting established in the UK, which was very much appreciated.
