This cottage is a gem! Its location is absolutely fantastic for views and seclusion. Despite there being another, smaller cottage next door, we never heard anything, and we had totally separate private gardens that didn't overlook each other. The cottage itself is a superb renovation, nicely decorated and modern but still felt homely. We want to goRead more again during summertime! Hide
