    “Very cosy cottage in an immaculate state of cleanliness.”

    Noreen was a lovely host and very helpful. The house is in a very quiet area with wonderful views around from the upstairs picture window. The extensive and beautiful gardens around the house were fantastic for our daughter & dog to blow off steam. Would definitely recommend for a peaceful break in lovely scenery.
