We booked this cottage for a hen do but it was also for a relaxed girlie weekend away with my cousins.
Amazing area - very picturesque, beautiful gardens and the private swimming pool and hot tub was a big big bonus. We really enjoyed ourselves.
The location is fairly remote so it's perfect if you want somewhere quiet and relaxing. However, the town centre isn't too far away if you do fancy venturing out.
Cottage was in a very good condition with all amenities. The owners were very gracious and allowed us to use their very large gardens if we wanted to (which we did for a hen dare).
All in all, a very lovely place indeed. Only slight issue was if you need to use wi-fi, the reception isn't great. Only one person in our group was able to access the wifi on her phone. But this isn't a big deal as we didn't need to use the internet all the time.
Would highly recommend the cottage and will hopefully be visiting again soon!
