    “Short Break”

    We booked for a weeks stay. Key collection was easy. The cottage is nice and clean, very well equipped for a short stay. The bed and sofa were comfortable. The owners are close by and were helpful in suggestions when we arrived ...

    We booked for a weeks stay. Key collection was easy. The cottage is nice and clean, very well equipped for a short stay. The bed and sofa were comfortable. The owners are close by and were helpful in suggestions when we arrived. I can imagine it to be a bit noisy if you went to bed early as the pub wall is party to the cottage bedroom. It was not a problem to us and all quite by 11.30pm Saturday and 10.00pm Sunday, Monday. It has a wet room which can be a little awkward. A soap dish in the shower area would be very useful. The Explorer Bar next door was very nice and the locals particularly friendly. In all a lovely little find. So disappointed when we got a call that needed us to go home early. A place we would like to return to.
