We really enjoyed our time at this cottage. It had everything we needed and more. The garden was an added bonus, but as we were out and about all day we never had time to sit out in it, but I did see they had a BBQ there. Our stay here was brilliant.

Only slight drawback was that there was no pavement to reach the walks from the cottage but, having said that, we didn't encounter any problems in walking along the road for a hundred yards.
