Loved the history of the house, with top floor full of light for weaving and its relationship to the historic Mill down the road. Very nicely converted. Stairs steep and narrow, awkward for carrying cases, needed the thoughtfully installed handrails

Great cottage over three stories. Great condition and location. Very steep stairs! Would have been a concern if my children had been younger.

This cottage was gorgeous. It's newly decorated and everything felt new & spotless, while still holding on to its historic uniqueness. It's well kitted out with almost anything you could wish for, including sharp knives & even a slow cooker! Note if you have small children: there isn't a bathtub or a washing machine and the steep stairs are perhapsRead more a bit tricky for little legs/climbers. The owners were so kind and helpful with all of our questions and needs and we had a wonderful stay. Hide
