Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our stay... It is a lovely cottage, equipped with everything one could possibly need. The welcome hamper and flowers were a very thoughtful touch. We all enjoyed ourselves exploring nearby (and Jamie surfed one day!) and having a relaxing time in a beautiful part of the country (Aug 2019)
