Cosy cottage with great inglenook fire. Very quiet and peaceful with fantastic views from the back garden. Although the location is very secluded, there is still relatively easy access to local towns and beaches.

Very nice cottage and location. Small but big enough for 4 adults and a baby. We had a very good holiday.

Lovely small, clean and welcoming cottage situated at the bottom of the owners garden. We felt it was a little too small for four adults, especially around the dining table and the living room furniture was not very comfortable. Bedrooms however had very comfortable beds and lots of space.

Reply from: Quality Cottages Team

Thank you for your review, we will pass your recommendations onto the owners, the cottage is in a lovely rural setting right on the waterside and perfect for a relaxing break.
