    The cottage is located in a lovely, quiet street just a short walk into Martinborough; such a tranquil, restful setting. The cottage is beautifully presented, with superior decor, linen, tableware, etc. It had absolutely everything we needed and more. We enjoyed strolling into the excellent local cafes and restaurants and also the local movie theatre one night. A perfect holiday.
