Catherine has given every thought to her visitor needs. The cottage is well maintained, spacious, tastefully furnished and very well equipped. The welcome pack is generous and comes with plenty of local information. The locale is quiet and within easy reach of local tourist attractions. Would have no hesitation in staying here again if returning to the area.
