This cottage is perfect for two people and in a good location. Personally we do not like large roll top baths as we are not very tall and they are difficult to get in and out of. The owners were very helpful regarding our inability to work the TV and DVD. We stayed there three years ago and hopefully will be staying again next year.

A very nicely equipped cottage, tastefully converted from a barn. It is an ideal base for a very relaxing holiday for two and a dog. A couple of potential negatives to be aware of: 1. The bath shower is very attractive but, unfortunately a "form over function" failure. 2. There is no footpath on the road outside the property which has some very fasRead moret traffic Hide

The cottage itself was lovely, and the owner very helpful. Our only problem was that there was nowhere to safely walk the dog without getting in the car, just a nearby farmers field which wasnt ideal. Perhaps I should have done a bit more research. I chose the location to be reasonably near to friends we were visiting.
