Recently stayed at Kerr Cottage and I genuinely believe no review will do this place justice. Liz was a perfect host who couldn't do enough for me during my brief stay (she even ironed my shirt). The house and rooms are immaculate and there was plenty of space in lounge to relax. The bed was very comfortable with quality linen,... More
