This was my second stay in Mole's Cottage. I had returned as I already knew that it was a very nice cottage, and it was in a good location for a walking holiday. It was even more important to have somewhere lovely to stay this time, as the weather was poor and more time had to be spent indoors. I particularly enjoyed sitting in the sun room and looking at the views.
