"Perfect in Every Way"

This cottage was a wonderful surlprise. It was beautifully and practically decorated, and its location really excellent...very close to all facilities. The owner, Ashley was both very friendly and helpful, and her thoughtfullness of providing fresh produce and town/area information for us on our arrival was unexpected and very much appreciated. The cottage was luxurious and its facilities helped make our stay totally comfortable and happy for the entire week. It was excellent value. We definitely plan to return to such wonderful accommodation, delightful town and stunning area at some time in the future.
