Terrific cottage, albeit it small. If you're unusually tall (and I'm over 6'4"), be forewarned that most of the beams were placed in a different era, so you'll have to be careful. But the plusses are much more than compensating. Bushels of CHARM! The perfect bolt-hole for two people who really want to be together. Romantic! And the village itself iRead mores delightful and real. The museum at the brewery is outstanding. The small grocery store was well stocked. The footpaths many and delightful! Hide
