“Amazing Cottage in a superb location”

The whole stay was beyond our expectations. The finish in the cottage was superb. To have the stream in the back garden with beautiful wildlife is tranquil. The log burner in the sitting room for a chilly evening was great. The showers in both bathrooms had very good pressure and luxurious. What a fantastic space the kitchen is very well fitted and the underfloor heating great in the morning.
The cottage is a total credit to Linda and Stan the owners. We wish we could have stayed for longer.
