  • Just thought I’d drop you a line after staying at the above last weekend. We had a brilliant time and were highly impressed by the quality of the cottage, its presentation and the fact that everything you could need was to hand. We’ve stayed at a number of cottages around the UK and this is by far the best one yet.
