The finest things in life don't have to be lavish. Sometimes, they are the simplest and the most familiar... A crackling log fire and an easy chair. A mellow pint,
a glass of ruby-red. Food you remember long, long after it was savoured. A place where you feel cosseted, yet instantly at home.

fussy or pretentious, spotlessly clean, and the attention to detail in the furnishings

‘We spent two nights in the cottage and used as a base for exploring
the peaks with our little Dachshund. The cottage was spotless and real cosy and the dog loved the rear yard
