Keeper's Cottage is absolutely delightful. The kitchen is well-appointed and the lounge is comfortable and spacious. There is also a really super smaller lounge. The garden is lovely and the views are amazing. The 2 main bedrooms are great. On the downside, the 2 upstairs bedrooms are small and, because they are in the roof space, not easy to standRead more upright in. The steep and shallow stairs up to them are not easy to tackle.

Perfect remote location with wonderful walks and pretty garden. The cottage is ideal for walkers who are dog owners as it provides an outdoor kennel for short use when going out for meals/ shopping etc.

Lovely well equipped cottage in an out of the way location near to the M5. Excellent base for exploring on foot or on wheels. Remote enough to be secluded but you can still get pizza and online shopping delivered. Enclosed garden with good views. Was nice being greeted by sheep, lambs and cattle in the surrounding fields over the walls.
