The cottage is a fantastic area for anyone that needs to reboot and unwind. The area is stunning a lovely lake to front full of geese, a mini waterfall at the side of the pod and a brilliant river to discover at the bottom of the field.

Even the outside space was catered for with fuel for the barbecue and fire pit. Total tranquility for both human and dogs alike. Hide
