This cottage was just perfect in terms of location, furnishings, space and comfort. Lovely and warm, quiet, but in the heart of the town with some fantastic food available.

A charming, character property with an extensively stock kitchen, feeling very homely, comfortable and lived in. Set in a beautiful church courtyard just off the main high street of a quaint market town with an abundance of food shops and a pannier market.
