The hospitality of the Owners Rena and Pete is outstanding, they cannot do enough to help you and have a great knowledge of the local area and also helped research for other things of interst specially for us too. The welcome items left for us were a very nice personal touch that i have never received from anywhere else, and the children loved them too.
The Cottage is spotless and dogs are allowed which was brilliant as the walks were amazing and there is such diversity. Rright outside is a hill to hike, just stroll along the local lanes or just half hour away in car you can choose either a forest or sandy beech. It is in a great location. For self catering, I have never been in a place so well equiped, the furniture and fixtures are lovely and the kitchen is so well equiped it is actually better than my own.
The views from the cottage are fabulous and the little village nearby is so picturesque and everyone is so friendly, it was a joy to have a little natter with the butcher and the tea room owners.
I cannot recommend this holiday home enough, we will definately be returning in the very near future and we did not want to leave.
