Yet another wonderful stay at Margaret Cottage

5 of 5
Carrie is always quick to return any emails when booking the property and very helpful as I wanted to add more dates to my original booking. This is my second stay at Margaret Cottage and Nickie was there to meet me on arrival and on hand again during our stay if required. The cottage is certainly home from home and is presented lovely, we were very lucky with the weather but if the weather was bad there are plenty of books, jigsaws etc etc in the cottage. 5 stars yet again and can't wait to come back to wonderful Appledore and Margaret Cottage.
