“It is not often that you walk into a holiday let and feel instantly at home, but the owners of The Green have put a lot of care and attention into the rental arrangements at their lovely cottage, and it really shows. The welcome pack, including fabulous local bread and jam, and extra supplies in the fridge and cupboards were much appreciated”.
