"The best cottage we have stayed in."
We chose this cottage for its location but upon arrival we realised we had chose well!
The cottage was immaculate throughout with a huge amount of attention to detail, everything was perfect and the Royal Oak pub just around the corner serves the best breakfasts ever - great for a real treat!
The cottage is well laid out and very cosy with the log burner we shall defiantly be booking again soon.
