Very lovely cottage, excellent location, descent size rooms & VERY WELL equipped kitchen. Best choice for group of 11-12 people. Best thing about this place is there are around 7 bathrooms, big dinning room, 2 reception room with games and good collection of DVD's and books.

We had visitors from Australia and The Anchorage was ideal for our group, we were self catering and the place was well stocked with cutlery and kitchen equipment. The location to the town centre couldn't have been better, would certainly book again, thank you
