'Saskia & family' - The Netherlands

July 2019

"Immaculate, comfortable very well equipped cottage. Comfortable beds, great shower and super thick towels. Totally equipped kitchen, smart TVs in every room. My daughter said it was like a posh hotel (although self catering obviously).
South facing decking with chairs and table. Very quiet immediate area and pub in walking distance which served a great Sunday lunch (need to book) and were great with allergies if you need that.
The owners were very helpful if needed and full of local information but equally left us to our own devices.
Lots of places to visit within a 30 min drive.
Would thoroughly recommend." 

'Alison (family)', London
