    “The cottage was of a high standard, ...”
    The cottage was of a high standard, very clean, well maintained and well equipped. The central location was great for amenities (fantastic artisan bakery and brewery in the village) and a good base for walks with the dogs. The food was also of a high standard from the Eagle and Child pub with a lovely beer garden that is just next to the river. There are some road works at the moment and a diversion through the village due to the bridge coming down earlier this year which makes it one way only ...
