A delightful cottage set in 2 acres of natural gardens with duck pond and ducks. Croquet lawn and boules court. Cycles available. Excellent walking and cycling country. Plenty of country bars where a 3 course lunch costs on average 10 euros. <BR>One bedroom plus a mezzanine with three single beds dividable by railed curtains. Extensive range of books.<BR>This is a medieval property converted to be a comfortable holiday stay, with lots of light and space. Not a perfectionists dream but more a romantics nest. It has a very relaxing atmosphere.<BR><BR>Horse riding in woodland countryside nearby. Many fishing lakes and golf courses nearby. 2 open air swimming pools and 2 indoor ones.

Reviewed 28 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The cottage is very comfortable and cosy with everything you need. A lot of thought has gone into making your stay pleasant. The surrounding area is stunning. The owners are very helpful and friendly. The reason for the 'average' review is the advert is very misleading about swimming pool and beach. There is no pool on the property at all...

Management response:

Sorry about the pool but we only put it out on request and you did not ask us whilst visiting! Not all parants want a poll for safety reason. Best wishes Ann Davis
