We have stayed in many cottages but this cottage has been one if the nicest. The cottage was very clean and the cream tea awaiting us very good. We ordered a hamper before we came and this was full of essentials, bacon, sausages, home made bread etc. each room had fresh flowers in them. The views from the cottage were amazing and it had an added bonus of a swimming pool. The gardens were so relaxing and Diana and Jim were perfect hosts and did their upmost to make us feel welcome and we felt that we really could use all the grounds. A lot of places say walks from the door but there really was so many walks to take, the car just stayed where it was. Had we wanted to go and see towns and seaside they seemed to be very accessible and most under an hour to get to. We found the local people very friendly and only to pleased to stop and talk. The information in the cottage was up to date and there were very clear walking guides. Needless to say we have already booked next year. Very good value for money
