Situated in a pleasant rural village you'll see plenty of horses, goats and dogs on walks. The cottage is clean and ideal for a couple's break, although at times you'll here some of the farm noise. Probably best suited for couples wanting to go out and explore the countryside or a day trip to the beach only about 45 mins away.
