We recieved a very warm welcome, including milk, bread, tea, coffee and other essentials. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners of the cottage (who live adjacent). They were always friendly and welcoming. The owneers have horses, ponies and donkies. They were very friendly and my daughter loved going to see them. this was a lovely base to explore many places within an hours drive. I highly recommend it.
