This is a very cleverly designed large room with fab bathroom ( great shower) which has been recently renovated to a very high standard. It is comfortable and extremely well equipped with access to a large garden and wonderful views. The hosts could not be more welcoming or helpful. I was sorry to leave!

Pump cottage is an absolute Godsend! The owners, David and Caroline have given much thought & consideration into what makes for a memorable stay and truly are the most friendly and amiable hosts. The property itself has been finished to a very high standard. A relaxing stay in attractive surroundings. Location - having your own transport would be aRead moredvisable but not a necessity. Eddie and I were the first guests apparently but will definitely not be the last. We are planning a return trip already! Hide
