  • "Absolutely perfect little cottage in a idillic location."

    Lots of local walks right from your doorstep. The inside decor is well thought out and is spacious but also super cosy. The weather was on my side so enjoyed the garden as did my dogs, one literally slept on the grass all day long! The snug and its rocking chairs looking out onto the garden and fields beyond was perfect. The owners live next door and were very friendly and said I could knock on their door if I needed anything. The only one thing I feel I need to mention is the garden fencing, if you have a very small dog or a fence jumper this garden will not be secure enough.Also if they are reactive to sheep as they are in the field at the bottom of the garden. Having 4 dogs myself and 2 of them being super reactive and escape artists i know I could not bring them. Having said that the two I did bring had the absolute best time and I will 100% be returning to Lime Tree Cottage
