This is a really lovely property. Clean, well equipped, loads of hot water. Comfortable bed. It is ideally situated to visit so many interesting places without having to drive miles. Nice pubs and places to eat. Butchers two minutes away do ready microwavable meals, highly recommended. Owners were next door,welcomed us and showed us round property.Read more It might be worth noting stairs are quite steep, but as with many old properties this is case. We had lovely week here and highly recommend it. Hide
