The owners consider the cottage too small for three adults, except in exceptional circumstances and by prior arrangement only.

The cottage is very cosy and amazing use has been made of the space with everything you could possibly need. It is extremely well-organised. The location is fabulous, and we had a wonderful time, hence the second visit nearly 7 years on.
