  • “Cottage in a lovely position in a nice village, close to shops and a very good local pub, a step away.”

    Interior in need of updating especially bathroom, lighting very poor. Lounge area ok but furniture far too big for the space ,kitchen has most things you need for a self catering holiday. A tip for ladies no hairdryer. Also no outdoor space for sitting only a small table & chairs by the car !
