The cottage was comfortable, cosy and spotlessly clean. It was well-decorated and well-maintained, with a light and airy feel, especially in the living room/kitchen area. The bed was comfortable, with high-quality linen. The owners were friendly and welcoming and provided little extras, like milk, tea, bread, butter and biscuits, which made all the difference. The garden was beautiful and there were always many different types of birds around. Planting around the cottage helped to make it feel very private.
