This is a beautiful, cosy, romantic cottage......

  • 5 of 5

Pekin Cottage is the perfect cottage for two....We stayed for 3 nights in this idyllic setting. It is exactly as described only nicer. It did feel in the middle of nowhere which was exactly what we wanted yet it was very easy to get to so many lovely places once you get your bearings. The cottage was spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished and decorated and had everything we could have needed. Lovely big comfy bed, big fluffy towels, great en suite and the owners had left a lovely welcome for us by way of fresh scones, cream, jam and milk.....so thoughtful. We met Charmion briefly and we knew where to find her should we have needed anything but absolutely everything was perfect. We would definitely recommend this cottage and its setting as a perfect getaway from it all.
