Recommend Reviewed by MichaelDec 2019 "It was a pretty cottage, with lots of period charm, furniture in the lounge, and beds are very comfortable." Modern large pretty kitchen. But limited dishes which we found a problem as we were visiting family in the area, and when we brought them back for a meal, I had to borrow dishes and cutlary, as we only had four of everything, apart from plenty of drinking glasses. The single room is also small and dark due to the small windows, I appreciate that due to the age of the property nothing can be done about this. Having the owners very nice pub\ restaurant next door was a great bonus, both for the good food which they will deliver to the cottage if required, and locked safe car park at night. In all we had a lovely time it's a clean pretty period cottage, with friendly staff and we would be happy to recommend it. We will visit again in the future no doubt.
