Property Reviews

this must be the most undersold cottage I've ever stayed in. It absolutely oozes charm , we are super warm and cosy and the gas log fire is a joy (no mess). Everthing was perfect when we arrived- spotlessly clean and well equipped. We have a huge bath, the bedroom is lovely, and I adore the creaky floors, thick walls and ages old doors. So much character, I may refuse to leave on Saturday!Louisa
We loved the extra cosy touches with the blankets in living room and the property decorated with Xmas tree and little decorations. Made it very niceMiss Benson
