We were impressed by the size, comfort and facilities at this cottage, depite being in the town centre! The kitchen was very well equipped and the small garden at the back was a bonus too. The cottage is like the Tardis! Lots of toys and books to entertain the young ones. Lovely restaurants within walking distance. Would highly recommend this cottage.
