An absolute gem of a find. The cottage is lovely and the garden is absolutely stunning and perfectly secure for our dog Murphy. The flowers is every room and the treats of cake, fruit, milk and a bottle of bubbly for our anniversary was much appreciated. Joanne is so lovely and we couldn't have wished for a better stay.
