Perfect for that well deserved break

I booked this perfect cottage for our anniversary last month. Working in a hotel it makes you critical knowing what to look at first and I must say it was lovely to stay somewhere knowing they have the same standards as yourself. We arrived late due to work and traffic and the owners were very friendly and helpful with directions, telling us where to go with our minature daschund. There was no signal which made it more special as we work 7 days a week I would definitely book again. This cottage is perfect just to get away and hide in your own little world. Thank you again for everything. Read more
