    "An excellent cottage and well equipped. In a lovely village with wonderful walks directly from the door and surrounded by beautiful countryside. Lovely outside seating areas, one in courtyard at rear of property was a sun trap where I spent many a happy hour chilling out with a glass of red and a good book. A very friendly and welcoming owner who went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. We will be definitely be recommending this cottage to friends and family. We all loved it.
