We had a great holiday here. The kitchen dining area was really impressive with view out to the lovely large garden. The cottage was kept cosy throughout our stay and it was was great to have a utility area to dry off boots and jackets. Nice to have bath & a separate shower and the bedroom had more storage than you would ever need.
