"Very Comfortable. Home from Home"

We had a wonderful week at Shingle Cottage with guests from America with three young girls aged 6,3 and 1. The house was very well equipped and extremely comfortable - everything one could have asked for while on holiday! It was very well thought out by the owners. The bottle of wine was a lovely touch when we arrived late on the Friday night after driving 3 hours in the heavy rain. The house was lovely and warm when we arrived! We also received a much appreciated note/guide of where to take the kids and how to entertain them during our week in Burnham market. All in all a great experience and would go back to visit the next opportunity we get. Thank you so much for having us and sharing your home with us.
