Review of Lawn Cottage
Posted on by Becky CCustomer stayed Oct 2012
We have stayed at this lovely bed and breakfast two times now, unfortunately the second visit was for a family funeral, but nevertheless, it is a lovely peaceful setting, with a wonderful hostess, very clean and very welcoming, would not hesitate in recommending it to friends and family.
