Dolphin View Cottage (previously Maw Cottage) was purchased in 2011 by Lynn Birch who has lived locally for over 30 years.  Lynn is a dog owner, a keen walker, birdwatcher and outdoor enthusiast.  If you have any queries she can offer great suggestions for days out and dog-friendly places to visit. If you have been directed here by a search for www.dolphin-view.co.uk don't worry it is the same cottage, but I no longer use that website.

As the cottage is a one bedroomed cottage it is best suited for couples. However there is an IKEA chair bed that can be used in the living room.  EPC band E.
