Beautiful home where the owners made us feel very welcome for our Christmas holiday, they had put up a wonderful decorated tree, set the dinning room table for Christmas lunch, left Christmassy floral arrangements around the property, Christmas music playing, mince pies and champagne left for us. All very nice touches in an already well thought outRead more comfortable home. We loved cooking on the aga and played endless amounts of table tennis, pool and darts. Best holiday cottage ever.
