Perfect destination for a family get together. The huge kitchen is the hub of the house but the three separate lounges give you space to have some quiet time if you need it.

My Family enjoyed the space offered by this lovely property. All 5 bedrooms are a very good size, as are the 3 lounges. As for the kitchen dining area, that seemed huge, with a large table at one end. It was fun cooking on the Aga. Outside there was again ample space with a large patio and grassed area. Would we stay there again. Yes we would.

A beautiful cottage that was perfect for a family gathering. There was plenty of space including multiple living rooms where you could find peace and quiet. The children loved running around in the garden and building forts in the conservatory. The owner was very helpful.
