Beautiful house in a nice location. We were a party of 9 and being able to spread around the house was great. As this was an incredibly hot weekend most of it was spent in the garden, enjoying the sun with evening barbecues. Would definitely recommend this property and would love to return one day.

The perfect property for our friends 60th birthday - everyone had a great time. A characterful property but with age and size you should expect issues but owner and caretaker went out of their way to resolve our issues and we couldn't have had a better week

Very nice and spacious, great garden for sitting outside. Very reasonably priced. A very short walk away from the co-op, and the beer and cider emporium/bar/cider press. Really glad we stayed here.
