Reviews

We thought the property was brilliant - the owners have clearly put in a lot of thought and care into making it a welcoming holiday cottage. It really was the perfect place for a few days break. The booking process was very smooth and the property was perfect - everything you need for a few days away from home. Hannah from Kent - 5th December 2018
Really great place, lovely location and the place was very fresh and modern.Chris from London - 5th November 2018
