A really nice country cottage ideal for a comfortable relaxing break in a area of outstanding natural beauty. National Trust and/or English Heritage members would find lots to visit in the area and the East Coast is only 35 miles or so away.

On the whole the property was very good. The duvet was much too hot for the summer so provision of a summer one would have been good. A pizza cutter would have been nice but otherwise lovely and nice owner and housekeeper.
