"Lovely, well-fitted cottage in a gorgeous location"
From our arrival just as the sun was setting, we knew we were in a special place. The owner, Jane, spotted us and gave us a warm welcome, showing us to our cottage. The lounge has a superb fire whilst the bathroom is well kitted out. The cottage oozes character and, somewhat surprisingly, has some of the best Wi-fi we've ever experienced!
The cottage is located in a beautiful part of the country with superb walks and great food easy to find. All in all a lovely few days and we would not hesitate coming back.
Thanks very much for the review. We have jus upgraded the WiFi connection so good news to hear it is all working well! Nice to be able to enjoy the views but still check the emails as well! Hope to see you both back again in the future. Jane
