This is about our 6th visit to wagon cottage, so need I say more? Hosts are friendly and welcoming, the cottage meets all of our needs. It is such a peaceful area with a lovely large, safe garden for our dog Lottie. So much in the surrounding area to visit. We have already booked for 2025, so we highly recommend a stay.
