  • "Very good cottage with everything you need."

    No problems at all. Good location and parking was a definite advantage.

  • "Lovely accommodation, plenty of equipment for self catering."

    Downstairs bedroom ideal with bathroom ( with walk in shower) ideal if mobility is an issue. Upstairs space also comfortable with lots of space and enough hanging and storage. The small garden is a suntrap, so nice to sit out with a cuppa or glass of wine, or sit sheltered from the sun under the tree. The location is great, with access to the main road which can take you to the seaside or countryside, also take a walk along the cinder track and admire the viaduct.
