The accommodation is lovely. However it didnt quite work for us, as the open plan nature meant our dogs woke us in the night, and the garden was not accessible by just opening the door of the accommodation, it required you being with the dogs as you had to take them out of the door and open a gate to take them into the garden. The area outside the Read moredoor was not secure, and used by many vehicles. Hide

We had a great stay in this cottage, situated on a relatively quiet road, with a splendid view across the fields.
