“Road access was dreadful.”
The cottage is situated in a small village a couple of miles from the A49. The road is unclassified, tarmaced and very narrow with passing places in field gateways. There are high hedges on both sides of the road for the some of the route, which makes it impossible to see if any vehicles are coming in the other direction. We did try a couple of different roads both in and out of the village but found them to be much the same or worse. Lovely cottage, but there is no way we would go back because of the acces.
“Cosy cottage, charming hosts and only negative are the extremely narrow roads.”
Although, after driving in the area for a week we were getting more accustomed to them.
“We had a complete rest in comfort.”
Our host even booked us in to the local pub for our first evening meal and baked us a cake!
Cosy cottage in quiet and beautiful countryside providing excellent walking and attractive historic towns. Excellent pub with good food next door! Sadly not open on mondays and we were only able to fit in 2 visits.
“The accommodation was up a high standard - the area was near all facilities be it walking or visiting local attractions and museums.”
The pub was friendly and both food and drinks were good and not too expensive
“Lesley the owner was most welcoming and very approachable.”
The village was very quiet and the village pub was really good. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly.
“The cottage was so well equipped with even a slow cooker and food processor!”
We couldn't have wished for a more cosy and comfortable getaway
