This is a very modern, clean, large cottage. It's like a tardis, very deceiving from the outside, looks quite small and then it opens up as soon as you walk in. Pictures don't do it justice, it's lovely. Brilliant for that getaway. Good location and only a 10-15 min walk to centre of town. The cottage has everything you'll need for a relaxing staycRead moreation. I'd highly recommend and hope to return. Hide
