This property is true luxury and made all the more special as it was very accessible for my disabled daughter who is a wheelchair user. The estate manager and owners went to a lot of trouble to lay boards and ramps for the wheelchair as well as taking time to establish our needs before we arrived. It was lovely to have a welcome hamper and plenty of additional extras like toiletries, kitchen roll, dishwasher tablets etc that are usually rationed in self catering properties - but not here. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the cottage to friends and family and hope to return again soon. Thanks so much to Jilly and Christine. Val, Beth, Michael, Joan and Jan x
