    “Bidney's Cottage was in a nice ...”
    Bidney's Cottage was in a nice quiet location and the owner was very friendly on arrival and pointed out somewhere we could go off road mountain biking which was good. The roads were very quiet and my son and I spent a lot of time cycling around the local woods and the "L" roads which was pleasant.
