Buttercup cottage is simply fantastic. Every detail has been thought of and every design touch has been considered. The cottage is a wonderful, comfy, relaxing place with good access to many walks and beautiful views. Do bear in mind if you are taking a dog it is a very small property with an extremely small paved only garden - great for wine, nibbRead moreles and views but not our 4 legged friends. Loved every minute of our stay. Hide
