    “A beautiful cottage with outstanding views across the countryside.”

    Very relaxing. Cleanliness 5 stars would certainly recommend this cottage to anyone who simply wants to relax. The only problem was finding the lane to access the cottage- could do with signs on both sides of the entrance. The dirt track was rather difficult but understand it's a working farm used by tractors. A very pleasant holiday. The dog loved the open spaces around the property. The only thing that I would suggest is the weeding around the cottage which would enhance the property.
