House was perfect for our stay. Had everything you needed, was warm and cosy with great views as well. Loved it. Thanks.
Being mid-winter the cottage was a bit cool on arrival but it didn't take long and it was toasty warm with the heat pump, gas fire and panel heaters going... Only a short walk to the town centre, great location. WiFi was handy and kept the teenager happy!
