This little cottage was a perfect home from home for us. Tastefully and comfortably furnished, everything we could have needed,and much that was unexpected, was provided. Exploration of the village itself was rewarding - The White Lion does good food in a welcoming atmosphere , history lovers should check out Mill Lane, its not what you might thinkRead more! Hide

Perfect little home from home. REALLY impressed at the cleanliness, kitchen equipment, attention to detail and finish of the property. Perfect for what we wanted for a week. Owners live next door if required. Would definitely recommend to stay.
