A beautiful cottage in lovely surroundings, so peaceful and relaxing. Everything you could wish for in a holiday home and more. A lovely welcome from the host and the thoughtfulness of providing milk and delicious fresh eggs was greatly appreciated. Also a lovely welcome from Ben ( the four legged friend), he was always happy to see you. An ideal location for visiting the many local places of interest and to tour the beautiful countryside or just to relax or walk. Certainly hope to make a return visit.
