We had a great week at the Old Cottage as a family of 4. It's a beautifully restored property with lots of history. Very clean and cosy. Beds were comfy. The surroundings are also lovely, with plenty of space for children to explore. Sunsets in the evening were great. Quite far from any main roads so it was very quiet and tranquil. The owners were Read morelovely and gave helpful tips on things to do. Plenty of interesting things to do within 20 mins drive. We would definitely go back. Hide
