Facilitites and accommodation

When we say it’s a well-equipped holiday cottage we mean it! We’ve put in everything that makes self-catering accommodation a home-from-home, and then some! The one thing we don’t have is little notes everywhere – we trust you to use your common sense and treat our place well.
