"Lovely place!"

We booked the cottage just for a weekend to relax with quite short notice which wasn't a problem. The place itself is beautiful exactly what i was looking for- quiet surrounding with lovely views. There was no problem with locating the farm either.

The owners were very polite and helpful providing everything we needed( free-range eggs left for us just delicious!)
The cottage was very well equipped, clean and i didn't really expect it to be so big :) very good size rooms.

We really did enjoy our stay and the low price for renting made it even better.
