A characterful and cosy cottage, spotlessly clean, with everything provided for a comfortable stay. The wood burner is great on a cold evening and there is off-road parking on the driveway. There is a self-check-in and self-check-out process, making arrivals and departures very easy.

A comfortable, well-appointed cottage set in a peaceful, rural location. There were no glaring downsides and the house is furnished as though it were a home rather than a holiday rental.
