    Rated as 5 out of 5


    The cottage was very clean and cosy and well stocked with everything you would need for a holiday cottage. We had a personalised welcome and the owners were very warm and always available if we had any queries. It was also easy to find and in a very good position to access the lakes and neighbouring villages.
