The lounge area is welcoming with comfy sofas that are complemented with cushions and throws, and the wood burner is perfect for a chilly autumn evening.

A cosy and well equipped cottage in a lovely village. We found the bed linen particularly snug. We used the village as a base to explore the local area mainly for walking - this was a perfect location. Although we stayed in mid March the cottage was well heated as well as having the benefit of a wood burning stove. Unfortunately it wasnt quite warmRead more enough to enjoy the orrery courtyard garden with its own stream. We will definitely consider re-booking or recommending Hawthorn cottage. Hide
