Fantastic little hut with everything we needed. Very comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen and very clean! There are also plenty of 'garden games' which we had a lot of fun playing - pitch and putt, ring toss, skattles and loads more. The nearby shop has all the basics for anyone not wanting to travel too far. Our little dog enjoyed walking aroundRead more the fields as well as watching the ducks. Lovely place and we highly recommend it! Hide
