“Lovely in every way.”

Just had a week in this lovely cottage. It is spacious, clean, comfortable. Lovely rural location with walking from the door, but less than a mile to the main road. Many hours can be spent just watching all the birds on the feeders - top up bird food was provided, and needed! Jenny welcomed us with the table laid for tea and a lovely fruit cake. Fresh flowers in the lounge. Modern, bright kitchen which is well equipped. Only negative comments are: a shower over the bath in main bathroom would be welcome, and more ovenproof dishes or casserole type dishes. Overall a very thoughtfully equipped and furnished cottage with plenty of space.
