    “This cottage was everything we dreamed of and envisioned.”

    Every detail was a delight. The cottage garden was lovely and enchanting. The village of Longborough was also very charming. We enjoyed the Coach and Horses pub and the country store was adorable and had everything we needed. We will miss the cottage and hope to be back soon.
