    “A lovely clean well equipped cottage.”

    Front room very cosy for an evening in, with a warm electric fire. Great location. We arrived late the first day and parked in a nearby car park, otherwise there was spaces on the road near the house. Shame the smart tv was not connected to the internet.

Continue through to the kitchen/diner when feeling peckish to whip up a tasty feast making use of the ample appliances here, including a fridge/freezer and a handy washing machine, while a dining table sits in the centre which can be folded out to create plenty of space for all.

On warm days, enjoy sitting outside with a refreshing drink in the attractive enclosed courtyard, made beautiful with the décor and thoughtful touches, you can spend many a balmy evening here in the company of your loved ones.
