Our fifth stay at the cottage and as wonderful as ever. We had some great days out at Moors Valley (the blue cycle route through the woods is great with older children), Hengistbury Head and Bournemouth. New this visit was the walk through the forest starting at Beachern Wood car park where the boys enjoyed the rope swings and a paddle in the water. Thank you Amanda for all of your thoughtful touches around the cottage and for the gifts for the boys.
