"A great holiday in a unique property"

We thoroughly enjoyed our break in Railway Cottage, which was spotless and well resourced, with a lovely 'welcome pack'. The information prior to arrival was excellent, and everything was exactly as planned. The house was intriguing; watching the steam trains was fascinating, and we very much enjoyed walking and exploring this area, which was new to us.
