12th Comment The Bottle of wine that was put out for our arrival was a nice gesture. The Cottage and garden where perfect and just what we wanted, especially the decking and widow seat dinning room, even the summer house was well equipped. The surrounding area was very nice and the local people very pleasant and easy to get on with. All in all a pleasant and very relaxing break. We will go back again. Feb 2009.
13th Comment A fantastic place to relax. The views to the sea were breath-taking and the location was superb for long walks. Not sure how easy it would be to let the dogs out if there was actual live stock in the open fields... March 2008.
