  • Mary

    “A lovely little cottage, immaculately clean and with excellent facilities and a beautiful garden.”

    We very much appreciated the books left for us to read by the owner when she heard about our interest in the nearby railway line walking trail which we remembered from our childhood as a functioning railway. The only two drawbacks were that the staircase is exceptionally steep and a problem for one of us who has limited mobility, and the mattress on the single bed was not comfortable and needed a mattress topper! Otherwise we had a lovely holiday. Thank you very much.
