The cottage still has the original timber and beams and the barn opposite is kitted out with table tennis, pool table, dartboard and plenty of games for the children of all ages.
We live close by so we can offer help and advice recommending local restaurants, bars, markets beaches etc if required.

Why not take the kayaks or the boat down to the village and pick up a baguette or croissants.
