    We were lucky with the weather in the earlier part of the week and though the owners were away, they made sure we were comfortable supplying us with sun beds and the use of their lovely private garden. The area is hilly but in the village is a cider orchard with gentle walks through it but for the fitter it offers numerous walks without getting in the car to drive to. There is a library of possible walks catered for by the owners. Thank you for a great stay.

    We were so sorry to miss meeting you as we were on holiday ourselves, but we are delighted that you had a great stay at the Cider Mill.
