"The cottage was lovely, had good quality equipment (eg pans, dishes, utensils, white goods etc). The owner was very welcoming and helpful. The furniture, fittings and bed linen were of a good quality and the cottage was very clean. The location was excellent for a peaceful break and it was great to be able to walk around the owner's fields and that dogs were allowed. The welcome pack was good - and very tasty!"Parker family
