We had a wonderful stay over Christmas while visiting family close by. The cottage is very comfortable and attractive and has all the amenities. It is in a beautiful country setting with lovely views. Helen and David were very welcoming.
Response from Owner
We are glad you had a wonderful stay. You are welcome any time.
The cottage was a little hard to find at night, but how lovely it was to step inside. Beautifully clean and very well equipped. Lovely quiet garden for meditation. Had a couple of issues but Helen and David were very approachable and fixed them very quickly. Highly recommended this cottage and the owners.
