Property self-catering holiday cottage
We had a most enjoyable stay and the owner of the cottage went out of her way to be helpful
A banner on the gate was very helpful in spotting the cottage. We had a lovely stay, being greeted by the horses in the morning was delightful, my grandson loved that. The garden furniture was a nice added extra as we had relaxing evenings sitting in the garden. The weather was perfect so our stay couldn't of been any better.
We had a really comfortable stay, and Jo was very welcoming. The cottage had been recently painted inside, the lounge refurbished and new central heating installed. Very well equipped and clean. A pretty patio garden with off road, gated parking. Delightful!!
We enjoyed our stay in this clean, well furnished cottage
