                                                              Lovely stay in a gorgeous cottage

                                                              The cottage was a wonderful place to stay in. Very well equipped and extremely clean. We travelled around locally with the help of the excellent information provided by the owner. Our dog Dotty enjoyed her stay and the secure garden which we also found nice when the sun was shining. Would recommend to my family and freinds.

                                                              Das Appartement ist sehr schön im Stadtteil Summertown gelegen. Das nächste Bushaltestelle ist nur ca. 200 m entfernt. Zu den Geschäften für den Bedarf des täglichen Lebens geht man gerade einmal 5 Minuten. Praktisch sind die 3 Schlafzimmer, so dass auch 5 Personen prima unterkommen können. Das Appartement ist sauber und mit allem Nötigen ausgestattet.
