Lovely welcome from the owner of the property with home baked brownies. Clean and tidy cottage on the small side but cosy wood burner and very quiet location. No pubs in walking distance but lots of good eating places nearby and picturesque places to visit.

Reviewed by Roger, 31st August 2017

For the price paid for four nights we consider the property a little small and cramped. The bed was in our opinion too firm - a matter of preference. The situation of the Cottage was for our purposes ideal and the owners were very welcoming and friendly. Our spaniel loved the local walks. A pity we did not have longer to fully explore the area.
