  • Thank you so much for having us! We had a wonderful stay

    Thank you so much for having us! We had a wonderful stay. The cottage was cosy, clean and well equipped. All the additional equipment (kayaks, bikes, outdoor games etc..) was a huge bonus!! Plenty of space to kick a ball around also. Can't wait to visit again :-)
