Loved this holiday cottage - suited all our needs, young, old, infirm and having dogs - just perfect and will return - only recommendation is nothing inside the property instruction plus a guide book with local area information supermarket/doctors/takeaways etc. Had a fabulous time and thank you so much for a brilliant holiday - one to remember!
