5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

I have stayed at the cottage a number of times and each time I don't want to leave. Aside from the wonderful location which speaks for itself, Jane has thought of absolutely everything, from books and DVDs to those little annoying things you always forget to bring. The house is beautiful, immaculately clean and extremely comfortable.
Everything in the house is of the highest quality with a lovely personal touch.
I cannot recommend this property enough.

Stayed at The Old Custom's house for a 5 day break, wish it had been longer.
Exceptionally well equipped house, in a fantastic location.
Looking forward to going back next year, if not before.
