    “This property is a little gem.”
    This property is a little gem. Quality of decor and level of comfort both very high. All facilities were top class, The only improvement that could be made, as far as a dog owner is concerned, is for an enclosed grass area for the dog. Having said that there are numerous good walks from the door. The area is well supplied with interesting towns and villages with good shops, pubs and restaurants.
