Home from Home with fabulous country views

  • 5 of 5

This was my second visit to this cottage, it has proved to be an ideal quiet location for when I visit my daughter who is studying at the University. It is a lovely spacious cottage with everything you could need for a very comfortable stay, the owners are very friendly and helpful, my dog is made to feel welcome too and he got on very well with owners own dog who often wanders around the property. The views from the lounge and kitchen are fabulous country scenes all the way down to the sea in the distance. I hope to stay here again later in the year.
