We found this cottage was in a very central location for days out. It was clean, very comfortable and very well equipped. The owners shared some very useful information regarding local places to eat and drink, supermarkets etc. We especially enjoyed meeting the farms flock of very friendly sheep and enjoyed lovely fresh eggs from the farm. I would Read morerecommend this property and will return sometime in the future. Hide
