Lovely comfortable cottages. Clean, well equipped. Home from home. Exceptional welcome with every detail thought through including delicious homemade scones, fluffy dressing gowns, lovely crisp white linen sheets, lots of help discovering the local area including restaurants. Five star service. Also fabulously warm in cold weather!
