Fantastic break! The hut was very clean and had everything we needed. The hot tub was fantastic. It's really secluded and rural which was just what we were after. Nothing but fields as you sit and have breakfast or relax in the hot tub. The village is really nice. There is no shop but we were prepared for this. There is a really nice pub that serveRead mored great local food. Great place to switch off from the world and go for walks etc. Hide
