"We stayed in Pig Run Barn with our young family whilst visiting family. The cottage was everything we could have asked for and more the little extras made you feel special - dressing gowns, white linen company toiletries and fresh cake on arrival the fridge was stocked with milk and water etc. the other extras like washing powder, dishwasher tablets, tea coffee all included and towels that you want to use not like these small towels you so often get.Louise Angus and Isabel all deserve a mention, they are so friendly, helpful and accommodating - perfect hosts.We will return, I am hoping at Christmas"
