  • "Found the key safe adjacent to the rear entrance which wasn't made clear."

    The neighbour advised us that glass bottles go into a box and not the 'wheelie bin' labelled glass bottles. The above was no problem and everything else was absolutely perfect. The location is really nice with two really good pubs in the village. Would definitely recommend.

  • "Lovely cottage with stunning views, well stocked with everything that you will ever require, there were a few days where parking was difficult given the building work be carried out opposite, but is the only issue I could find and not worth taking note of as you will always find a space nearby."

    the welcome pack was a nice touch and overall our stay was great. two great but different pubs and local Co-op within walking distance, if you get a chance book it.

    Thankyou for your feedback. So glad you enjoyed your stay at Grace cottage and we hope to see you again Property Owner

  • "Cottage was lovely."

    Although, on arrival we noticed that the handle for the window in the master bedroom had been broken off. Also, none of the windows in the cottage, apart from the bathroom would open. Also, the back garden patio area was full of weeds. Apart from these two things we had a fantastic stay. The cottage has exellent views of the surrounding countryside. And the area has so many places to go walking/ exploring. There are two local pubs that serve lovely food. We would definitely go back.

  • "Lovely house in a fantastic area."

    Very comfortable and homely and everything was supplied that we needed. However I wasn't aware this house was on a main road where parking was difficult. However this didn't spoil our time here as the neighbours were helpful and friendly and came out and moved their cars to enable us to park outside and not way down the road. Would definitely return when we can explore the area more and go in restaurants, cafes, visitor centres etc.

    Grace Cottage is absolutely lovely, it’s clean and well presented, and the owners were absolutely lovely too, really helpful and responsive to our questions. We had a fantastic time, and would heartily recommend the area and Grace Cottage if you are looking for a place to escape to. 10/10!

Alternatively sit outside with a glass of wine and soak up the beautiful views.

Being able to walk in and lounge across the sofa in front of the TV after a long day becomes an easy task as the main door leads straight into the sitting area.

The bedrooms are situated upstairs, with one master bedroom offering a spacious double bed, and a twin room ideal for extra guests.

An attractively tiled bathroom is on-hand to get yourselves ready for each action-packed day.

As well as two friendly village pubs, one serving food, St John's Chapel offers a Post Office, a shop and a couple of cafés.
