We had a lovely time with our two teen kids in this beautiful cottage and it’s surroundings. We experienced being part of nature with these magnificent hills around and the farmside experience of the cosy house. Within two hours we visited the beautiful coast aswell as London and Oxford. It was truly one of our best holidays ever!...
