Lovely views out of every window in this country cottage, spacious and clean. Very well-equipped. My son enjoyed feeding the sheep, collecting eggs from the chickens and jumping on the trampoline. Overall, an enjoyable stay in the peace and quiet of the country. The hosts were extremely friendly and very approachable.

This charming cottage is the perfect place to 'hideaway', it feels like home. Every tiny detail has been thought of - very impressive. The welcome is delightful.
