We had a wonderful 'girlie' weekend with my sisters-in-laws and their teenage daughters! The cottage was beautiful with fantastic scenery. It has absolutely everything you need and the welcome pack is a lovely touch as is the shampoo and shower gel. The hot tub was ver y well used and the the log burner is a real treat. The White Hart Pub (about a miles walk) was lovely for Sunday lunch! All in all a fab time and would highly recommend!
