Had a truly wonderful time in this beautiful part of England. The cottage is superb and extremely comfortable with a perfect location close to good walks, pubs and restaurants. Highly recommend The Sun Inn, Kirkby - amazing food! Thanks for leaving us with such a well equipped cottage, we'll highly recommend you to friends and family. more
