Me and my partner stayed in wren cottage last year and loved the cottages, the location and the atmosphere of the place that we decided to book the cottage attached ( robin cottage). We have had another fantastic weekend, great cottage with a log burner and plenty of space, beautiful views and lots of wildlife. We cant reccommend this cottage enough!
