A lovely cottage set in nice countryside, very close to some beautiful coastal locations and beaches.

A fantastic week spent in the old cow shed, Cottage furnishing is very classy, all the rooms were spotless. and the kitchen looked like it had never been used. So quiet and very relaxing, nice walk down to mill bay. Missing it already!

September 2017

The Old Cow Shed was lovely and somewhat quirky. We were very impressed on how clean it was on arrival and the fact that it was very well equipped. The little welcome pack was a nice touch. We really enjoyed our stay.
