It is a very relaxing place to rest and unwind. If you like to cook, rather than eat out then please be aware that the kitchen does not provide a 4 ring stove (only 2 ring). There is a dishwasher, which is handy because there is no draining board next to the sink - so we found ourselves using tea towels to make up for the absence of a ...
    The location is great for exploring some very interesting towns and villages. We were very happy with the overall comfort and cleanliness of Rookwoods Cottage.

There is a dishwasher, which is handy because there is no draining board next to the sink - so we found ourselves using tea towels to make up for the absence of a draining board. The garden is large, private and not overlooked. The sun stays in the garden for much of the time and it's lovely to watch it set over the distant trees. Please be aware that there are no sunloungers/chairs at the property - only basic and simple wooden dining furniture. A lovely place to stay - it has been decorated to a very high standard with tasteful colour-schemes and fabrics.
