  • “Cottage was really well equipped and also included little extras like shower gel, tissue, handwash, kitchen consumables and fresh flowers.”

    Our hosts were lovely...very welcoming, around if we needed them but not at all intrusive. ...

    Our hosts were lovely...very welcoming, around if we needed them but not at all intrusive. The estate is beautiful...peaceful and a joy to explore. We (4 adults and 2 dogs) had a great holiday, walking, exploring the coast (be prepared for very narrow lanes!) and generally relaxing. Would thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone needing an escape from the crowds, who love the outdoors, who have children who love exploring or dogs that go crazy for water and woods! Thank you to our hosts for sharing this paradise with us.
