Very pleasant cottage. Quiet and peaceful, shame there is not a pub within walking distance. Would recommend The Crown at Murnhill. Nice enclosed garden for our little dog. Owners very friendly and helpful.

Very peaceful, rural location, but close to lovely villages and walks, exactly what we wanted. Owners very friendly and helpful. Very comfortable and clean. Nice little touches - book shelf, binoculars, pack of cards, plenty of cutlery,crockery,pans (All very clean, which has not been our experience at some other cottages.) Loved the covered outsidRead moree space, perfect to sit and enjoy the outside any time of the day or night. Excellent place for night sky viewing. Hide

Wonderful location and provided a much needed home from home to relax and enjoy life away from the outside world. Location still provides easy access to various shopping and eating out venues, but at the same time is quiet.

We had a lovely stay at Waggon Cottage. There was a nice enclosed garden for the dog to run around and it was a lovely touch to find a bottle of wine when we arrived as well as some milk. We would definitely stay again.

Excellent holiday barn in beautiful surroundings. Very quiet and peaceful and ideal for dog owners as the garden is secure and 13 acres of field to run in. Very welcoming owners. This was our second stay and just as good as the first.

The cottage is well presented and has everything that is required. The phone and internet connections work well, which is important to us. The hostess is quietly aware of everything that happens, without intruding. This is a lovely friendly place to stay. Our second stay was every bit as enjoyable as the first - and the shortbread on the welcome paRead moreck was delicious. Hide
