Guests will find everything they need here, including a range-style electric oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine. Stairs from the hallway lead to a light-filled landing with a library of books, and onto the first-floor accommodation, where there are three delightful bedrooms, one with a courtyard view and two with countryside views.

Was the best equipped cottage we have stayed in, loved the fact that the garden was secure for the dogs. Really comfy sofas & beds. Attention to detail was great - loo roll, soap dispensers, doggy starter pack etc - all made for a stress free stay. Would definitely recommend, thank-you for a lovely holiday.

The description on the website does not portray enough how rural this cottage is. We loved its remoteness but with 20mins drive down single trzck lanes to get to a shop or a pub, it isnt for the fainthearted. It was a great reminder of my childhood years. Overall though, the cottage, its setting and its equipment were fantastic - thank you
