Guestbook comments from the owner
Our recent Dutch guests wrote :"The cottage is very well equipped, and there were some things that you might need instantly, like tea, coffee, sugar, pepper, salt and milk, what is nice, for if you arrive by plane, like we do, such things are not easy to bring along. The house-owner takes good care of the house and her tenants and is very friendly. The town centre is within walking distance, with several nice shops, and a large supermarket (Tesco). There is also a little Farm Shop, on Reform Street, with a very friendly shopkeeper, he sells lots of good and nice things, the every morning freshly baked bread rolls and croissants are very good. In the environment you will find many paths where you can walk, you need however good walking shoes and sometimes wellies, for it can be quite muddy! We are certainly planning to come back and stay in the cottage, if possible!"
