taking advantage of a last minute change of plans to have a relaxed christmas away , we selected this cottage from sykes website , we were pleased that it would accept our 'custom' booking (four days across christmas) that many wouldn't.
after an easy journey , we were welcomed in person by Brendon and Lois ,shown the cottage and treated to some delicious mulled wine.
the cottage is larger than the pictures suggest ,with a delightfully comfortable bed , beautifully lit for lazy mornings, a cosy living room for evenings by the fire and a clean , smart and convivial kitchen.
although the weather was wet we enjoyed the surrounding countryside , with some short walks and drives, but were always keen and happy to get back to Woodlands,
A big thanks to Brendon and Lois for achieving so much with the cttage and extending such a warm welcome,
Adrian and Alison
