 Great cottage which provided us with everything we needed. Out door area well fenced and the dogs loved it.

 Awesome house, very clean and just perfect for what we needed. The lovely breakfast supplies were amazing. Great stand alone house that's 2mins drive from the square but you feel like your in the country. Thank you

 Thank you for having us! We enjoyed our stay very much, and will definitely be back again. I particularly liked the added extras, for example the cereal, juice, milk, bread. Made us feel very welcome and at home.
