This charming cottage is the perfect place to 'hideaway', it feels like home. Every tiny detail has been thought of - very impressive. The welcome is delightful. We ordered the homemade soup on arrival and it was the perfect match to this gorgeous farm style cottage. The surroundings are gorgeous and romantic, yet perfect if you have kids as well....
