September 2019

A lovely cottage that certainly lived up to its name in a beautiful setting. Well equipped and very comfortable internally and with a very private little sun-trap garden which we were able to enjoy to the full having enjoyed a week of exceptional weather for september. The village of Mayfield is delightful with an excellent dining pub and lovely coffe shop both of which are obviously popular with the local residents, and an interesting selection of individual shops.
