The Cottage was within its own secure and good sized garden, set within acres of the property's own garden to which we were permitted access of large areas. The owner's passion for wildlife and love of animals was evident throughout, making it a delightful stay. We were surrounded by animals, birds and insects. In addition, the private use of the indoor heated swimming pool was a luxurious bonus.
