We would agree with previous reviews of this cottage and rate as one of the best we have stayed in. Clean, well equipped and the patio area at the back is a sun trap if you get good weather, which we did in September. Saw Red Kites and Buzzards almost everyday plus a wide variety of other birds using the bird feeder. It's super quiet, except for thRead moree call of the Red Kites and occasional call from one of the young bullocks. The log fire is very easy to use and soon warms up the whole house. Hide
