Previous visitors' comments about The Old Watchmaker's Shop:
Lovely, homely cottage in a perfect location for us to walk from the door to tour the moors area and coast. Loved the cosy wood burning stove and the enclosed rear garden was a safe place for our dog. Very handy for a great, dog friendly pub which served good beer and food. Have already booked another visit in the spring.

Good cottage for taking a dog as it has an enclosed garden. In good position for walking and good pub in village.

The location of the cottage was ideal.

The garden was fantastic with loads of flowers and birds, mums feeding their chicks, washing up became a pleasure! It was really nice to have the barbeque. We really enjoyed the couple of good evenings in the garden. Thoroughly enjoyed staying there.
