    “We arrived late and tired in the wettest most dismal week of the year to a wonderfully warm and welcoming cottage.”

    Tea tray laid out ready with cake and biscuits for us and for the dogs, heating on in every room and the log fire stacked ready to light. Meadows Cottage is both spacious and cosy, comfortable and well equipped and truly wheelchair accessible, except for the kitchen (which was a relief as I needed a break from kitchen duties). The garden is self contained so we could let the dogs out freely. The hosts are generous, kind and helpful without being intrusive. Half an hour's drive will get you ...

Half an hour's drive will get you to most of the costal walks and the local Garden Centre do a great full English breakfast if you need a morning treat. We will return.
