We found the cottage extremely comfortable and so well equipped. The quality soft furnishings and fittings together with numerous paintings and ornaments to be found everywhere make this place special. Outside the gardens are well maintained and the larger grounds are ideal for our four legged friends. Our dog loved playing in the fields.

Plenty of space for the dog to roam. Nice walks around the fields within the property. South Milton close by.

We had a very enjoyable time. The owner had decked out the cottage with xmas cheer including a tree. Very dog friendly since there were multiple fields outside our front door for our dog to run. The house was full of the most beautiful ornaments and felt like a home from home. The owner was immediately on site to sort the few problems we had. HighlRead morey recommended. Hide
