4/5 Good

We enjoyed it
Good stay - owner sorted out a couple of minor niggles Just bin location and where the garden furniture was- not immediately obvious

4/5 Good

Lovely rural location
This property was in a rural setting but driving distance from the coast. There was a hitch out of anyone's control, but the owner sorted it and all went well. The cottage was cosy. The kitchen/diner quite large. Sitting outside in the small yard at the rear was not really inviting, but there was a bench seat just outside on the village green that was lovely. The property and location suited us well.
