Review by Nadia, Mark and Radley the Dog: "Thank you for a lovely break! The cottage had absolutely everything we needed and was in a great location. We didn't need to bring anything as the kitchen was so well equipped and there were lots of tourist brochures in the living room which have us some good ideas for days out. We were quite unlucky with the weather (although it is a British summer so it is to be expected!) but luckily the living room had a DVD player so we had some entertainment during the wet evenings! The pub next door also has new owners who are really lovely, the pub is dog friendly and the food was great. It was a lovely break, thank you for letting us use the cottage!"
Best home made cream tea and oh so friendly at The Shipwrights Arms pub. Enjoy the garden,
