The owner Lesley greeted us on arrival, very friendly and informative. The cottage is very comfortable and beautifully designed. We (family of four and one dog), booked a short stay and would definitely return for a longer holiday as the cottage, village and surrounding area is peaceful for a country break. Highly recommended.
