Best Holiday cottage we have stayed in due to the thoughtful touches by Kat. We had a jar of doggie biscuits on the side, there was milk in the fridge, flowers on the table, a very useful book full of information to make our stay even more enjoyable. Lovely garden a real sun spot, and the conservatory was a lovely place to relax. Would highly recommend to anyone.
