You had thought of everything. Fantastic property - could have stayed much longer.

The property was well equipped and there was a lovely welcome pack. There was washing up liquid, towels and fire logs which was lovely. Scenery was fab. A really nice cottage. We would book it again.

Mrs Christa Dobson,
