It was a really nice cottage within a tranquil, rural setting.
Loeb, March 2013
The cottage was spotless, beautifully decorated and a real home from home. We loved everything about it and will be back!

We enjoyed our week at Little Shortwood, especially sitting out on the decking and the view. The owners were lovely and the cottage was clean. Local pub was good and the surrounding area was lovely.
