Beautiful house in a lovely setting run by kind and caring owners. Straight out of the door one has direct access to country walks. The garden is private and delightful. Our party likes to cook and we found all the equipment we needed. Its a great base to explore the area and all the garden of England has to offer. Thoroughly recommend

A very well decorated and comfortable place to stay. The owners were very helpful providing extra items that we requested including a sun lounger for my daughter. However, please note that the swimming pool use is very restricted including no weekend use. A great area to explore and a convenient walk to the centre of the village.
