Owner David was very helpful, and made special trip to provide fans for a hot few days. When we left something in the house he co-ordinated its return. Would come again, and fully recommended.

Splendid cottage with everything we needed for a magnificent stay. It was chilly during our stay so the central and under floor heating were necessary, particularly given my failure at fire starting on the first night! Loved it so much I could live there permanently.
