A very clean and tidy cottage with a very tranquil surrounding. So quiet in hat you could not hear anything but the wildlife. I would certainly consider staying here again. A tip to others staying here. Some mornings we woke up to thick mist, which might put you off exploring the area, but 5 miles down the road the sun was out. Don't let the mist pRead moreut you off going out. Hide
