It was a lovely little 1 bed place. Very nicely decorated, with lovely homely touches. Lots of room downstairs, then leading to a nice patio area and small grassed section. Very close to the local pub and shops with a short cycle or walk to lots of beautiful countryside! Very friendly little village, we had a thoroughly enjoyable time!
