Thank you so much for sharing No 4. We have had another fabulous holiday to set us up for this year. All the very best to you and your family.

Linda and C,

Our second Christmas here was even better than the first - it was like coming home!! So well equipped is this cottage we wanted for nothing. The owners obviously take much pride and care and it shows. Long walks, great pubs - SW changes but then again its the same as when we first came here 40 years ago. Here's to the next time. Best wishes,

Candice and R,

A delightful, welcoming, fresh, clean and well cared for property, which we will have pleasure in using again.

Mr K L,
