Such a lovely, spacious cottage. We've stayed 4 times we love it so much. The garden is huge, enclosed (dog-proof) with lots of garden furniture. I always bring a few kitchen bits but never need them as the house is so well equipped. Great to have two en-suites and a main bathroom (as well as a downstairs wc). We hope to return for a 5th stay.
