The perfect mini break. Super stay, cottage was amazing, excellent facilities, super pub down the road to eat at and lots of villages and towns to explore. 10/10!
The property exceeded our expectations, it was really homely and cosy. Also the little extras like bread, milk, eggs and the spirits were a bonus. Everything was really good quality.
Magical week away, we loved walking our dogs in the nearby beautiful countryside and coming back to the cottage to soak in the copper bath tub. Loved every little detail from the copper bath, bath robes to the gin bar in the lounge!
The property was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Very well equipped and lovely extras such as complimentary drinks and supplies.
