Fab cottage for multigenerational holidays. We visited with our son, daughter-in-law and grandson. There was loads of space, the cottage was really well equipped and sparkling clean. We loved the remoteness of the location and especially the ducks and ducklings next door. The scenery is stunning and nowhere is too far away in a car.

Lovely cottage. Worked beautifully with the size of our party. Plenty of space for the young children, and the enclosed courtuard meant they were safe when outside. Very well equipped, and the location was so peaceful. Would love to stay here again when we next visit the area.
