    Excellent. The owners were incredibly helpful before we got there. They checked if the local,pub would be open for drinks on Christmas Day, they gave me info on where to find vegetables on Christmas Eve and lots of other advice. I cannot speak,highly enough about them. The cottage was beautiful, extremely clean and perfect for a peaceful,and happy Christmas, the first without my lovely Mum. They left prosecco in the fridge to celebrate Christmas and another one for my birthday!! The village is gorgeous, The locals are friendly. Just perfect. Thankyou. The only slight niggle was not having a dish washer, but it just meant that our son had to work that bit harder after our Christmas dinner.
