Landgirls Retreat is a little gem, filled with little items from the 1940s. It have a log burning hot tub and is located in a nice quite Area of the village opposite the church. The local pub The White Horse is walkable and does excellent food. We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend.

Beautiful cottage in a great location. Fantastic facilities (hot tub, pizza oven and coffee machine to name a few) and lots of places to visit just a short drive away. Will definitely return in the future!

A beautifully presented property to get away from the rat race. Most suitable for those who want a quiet undisturbed break.

The Shepherds hut was located at the end of a lane opposite a church, bell ringing takes place Tuesday evenings. There is a local pub, but it is not open every day. The nearest town is about 3 miles away, with a good range of shops and eatery options. We tested the delivery services of the local Indian takeaway, which were very good.

The Shepherds hut is great with all the equipment you need, the pizza oven is great we made a pizza on our last night and it turned out amazingly. The hosts are so helpful and kind! We had 3 hour drive and Karen was kind enough to warm up the hot for when we arrived. The log burner is so great we are thinking of installing one in our house! So warmRead more and cosy. Cute weekend away! Hide
