Really well furnished cottage with a large garden and a well stocked kitchen. Plenty of parking and a nearby pub five minutes walking distance away. Most importantly its in a quiet location which is exactly what I wanted. The owner of the cottage Kevin lives in the next street and popped in to say he was always on hand if required.
