    Stunning cottage, with beautiful log burner. large garden, with great outdoor facilities, hot tub , sauna, fireplace. Lovely little welcome hamper. Would definitely stay again and already bragged others about how beautiful it was. Peaceful area too. Could do with larger saucepan, mixing bowl and some other handy kitchen items.
