  • The location was perfect

    The location was perfect. The home was very well furnished. If we had one criticism it was the invasion of privacy by people using our driveway to enter the conference Centre at the back of this property.

  • This was a beautiful cottage, really well fitted out and the kitchen...

    This was a beautiful cottage, really well fitted out and the kitchen in particular was great. It was really convenient In terms of walking into town and the outside space looked great, although sadly it was a bit cold for us to use it. There were plenty of heaters and a fire to keep the cottage cosy throughout our stay. We would definitely be back.
