Excellent all round. Delicious goodies supplied by the owners who kept a low profile. Clean and well equipped. Comfortable and views to die for. Hungry Harry ( our nick name for the stove ) giving us a fire work display every night as he died down. Fascinating.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this cottage - such wonderful, changing views every day. The lane is a challenge but we got used to dealing with the problems, which were indeed varied. The biomass boiler was fascinating, and looking at the history of the renovations this was certainly a labour of love. Our welcome was lovely - along with deliciouRead mores homemade cake, home eggs and organic milk all ready for us. Really didn't want to go home! Hide
