Thank you so much for your lovely review. I'm so pleased that you chose it for two of your summer holidays. I'm glad you found the cottage well presented and that the farmhouse kitchen is roomy enough to prepare and enjoy family meals. It's also good to know that the children made full use of the garden. The rear lawn does provide a huge play space. Dining al fresco on the rear terrace makes it easy for all the family to join in! The cottage is in an outstanding location to visit some of the most beautiful villages and attractions in the area and Angles-sur-l'Anglin is just one of them. We always feel the cottage is a lovely rustic haven to return to after a busy day and are so happy that you enjoyed your stays there. We'd love to have you back.
