As the accommodation was built specifically for the purpose of holiday letting it ticks virtually ever box. The property is excellent for natural light and the immediate surroundings are green and verdant. Although next to the house the cottage is private and the hosts friendly and helpful without being in any way imposing. Perhaps worth noting thaRead moret for this part of the world the WiFi was impressive. Hide

So quiet and peaceful. Loved the decor. The proximity of the pub was a real bonus. It was great to be able to stay in a place of such a high standard with our dog. The ones I looked at when choosing where to stay looked a little jaded. Excellent hosts and great to have some frozen food which we made use of for our meal when we got home.

Very well appointed and comfortable cottage, with everything you could need included. The location is lovely, with a pub a short walk away. (Unfortunately, we can't recommend the food there, but it's very friendly and the drinks are good.) Very helpful owners who are always on hand without ever being intrusive. Even their labradors put up with our Read moregrumpy terrier cross! Hide
