From the street Old Shop Cottage looks cute but tiny - inside it's not quite a Tardis, but definitely more than the sum of its parts. The main bedroom and en suite are really spacious, the cloakroom for coats and boots was really handy, and the kitchen might be small but was never cramped. At the back the conservatory has a comfortable sitting areaRead more and eating space, and the garden has a plethora of sitting areas (not to mention the Shepherd's Hut where our daughter was able to revise in peace).

So spotlessly clean , the Shepherds hut is a major plus, the underfloor heating in the conservatory is lovely, everything you could need in the kitchen, lovely log fire , So much room for everyone to move around, would love to go back in the summer months and spend some time in the gorgeous garden.

An absolute hidden gem. Can say without the slightest doubt that this is a cottage you could happily live in, not holiday home but home from home. A holiday rental that is literally fully equipped.
