    “We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay at Woodwaye.”


    The house was super clean with recently refurbished bath and shower rooms, the sitting room and bedrooms were spacious and well furnished and the kitchen had every untensil and equipment you would need. The garden although small had a bbq,a picnic table and parasol and the most entertaining of all a bird table which brought in a large variety of birds bathing and drinking. The only negative we had was there weren't any sun loungers or garden chairs in the garden and that would be a positive especially for visitors in the summer months. Woodwaye is in the village with everything a very short walk from the house, there's a pub on the corner of the road then further along the road there is a convenience shop a butcher a green grocers and a bakers we can recommend all of them. Further along the village is a chemist and another general shop, another pub and 2 hotels. we found the villagers very friendly and very covid safe all wearing masks. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it.
