'Exceeded all my expectations - an absolutely brilliant place to stay. The location couldn't be easier for walking into town. The cottage is clean and nicely designed... I couldn't fault it. As a travel writer, I've stayed at a lot of places and this is one of the best! Would definitely return.'

Superb!!!'
