6 May 2017  Perfect!  From the moment, we arrived we knew it was going to be lovely. The Cottage is everything you want and need from a rural gem. Location is superb with plenty of walks on your doorstep. Two nearby pubs that serve fabulous food. A bakery and the Sea Shanty that does great coffee. Can't recommend this place enough.
