This is a charming and cosy cottage and a welcome change from other, often characterless self catering properties! It is beautifully furnished and feels very homely. We could definitely stay for longer here and feel at home. The kitchen is particularly well equipped and with plenty of crockery and utensils! We'd love to come back in the Summer and make...
