My husband and I have stayed at Sun Cottage twice over a two year period for up to two weeks at a time. We have stayed in both the River Room and the Loft Room and could not recommend them both highly enough! The second visit was with my parents and 9 month old daughter and our hosts catered for...

The loft room was perfect for our needs and the hosts, Jean & Mike, were so friendly and hospitable. They made us feel very comfortable and even let us use their lovely garden when we needed to...
