We love bird watching and sitting relaxing in the garden we could enjoy a variety of birds and felt absolutely at home in this cottage. - especially the very nice feeling every time we walked into the bright living/dining room....a stress remover!! Of course the hospitality and warm welcome from Bob and Mamadou were unforgettable - Thank you so much
