"Really nice cottage with comfortable beds and a great lounge space. The kitchen was perfectly stocked with pots/pans/utensils to cook all of our meals. The terrace was lovely although we didn't use it much due to the October weather, but it got sun all morning. Definitely would recommend this place."
