“No fault of holiday cottage Idea for two people Lovely comfortable bed !”
— Ian, 7 August 2021
“A really nice little cottage. It has everything you would need. The only thing I would have preferred is a screen on the shower rather than a curtain really don't like these as they alway stick to you. Liz communicated well and was lovely when we spoke on the phone. Really helpful when I had to reorganise due to the lockdown last May when I was originally due to travel.Overall excellent.”
