It was a wet cold miserable afternoon but not inside Shy Cottage because Rachel had lit the fire ready for our arrival. This was one of many lovely touches that Rachel and Nigel (the new owners) provided during our stay.
The cottage has absolutely everything you need to be totally self-sufficient and the location is great. Only a few metres walk and you are in the centre of Greytown. There are some excellent restaurants but also a French bakery a butcher and a chocolatier.
It is quiet, spacious, secluded and very comfortable.
Fortunately the weather wasn't all dreary and we were able to explore further afield each morning after we had consumed the most amazing breakfast we have been supplied with at a B&B.
Yes, everything everyone else has said is true. The fridge was stocked with goodies and there was a daily delivery from the French bakery.
What's more it is a surprise each day to find something different when you lift the cover or look in the fridge.
