Strawberry Cottage

&quote;Had a great holiday. Fantastic location in terms of being rural with superb views and walking. Cottage lovely, pool area great and very clean although the water temp could have done with being a few degrees higher and the fishing lake, especially if you are introducing your children to fishing was superb as you just pulled out small fish all day long with nothing more than a loaf of bread. Only down side is the distance it takes to get anywhere which with small children can be a pain but if you were just after a quiet relaxing holiday then this is the place to go. We mixed days out with days on site fishing and swimming and the kids loved it. I would definitely go back.&quote;
