My family of 5 rented the cottage and 2 garden facing studios, #3&4 and we all had a great stay. Comfort in every aspect. Would definitely return. Shopping and eating is within a short walk or drive. Everything needed is provided. Cleanliness is a priority.

Owner was professional yet friendly (husband’s 4th visit, my first). Spotless accommodation, thoughtful food gift as we arrived late at night. Gorgeous setting, tranquil garden, quiet location close to dining options. A “hidden gem” indeed❤️❤️

No water day
I gave them a lower rating because that the water was shut off for a complete day in witch it ruins the fact that could not take a shower nor do any laundry although they did try to help by providing buckets for flushing the toilet I believe that if the water has been on ,it was for the most part close to 5 star rating
