    The Old Hat Shop is spotlessly clean, very fully equipped, even down to hooks behind the doors( a small but handy touch).

The tv has cd and disc player, the Wi-Fi is free and there is Wii provided.Plenty of storage comfortable furniture and beds, lovely garden and friendly neighbours. When we needed assistance Steve was very helpful and patient. Shops. Pubs and restaurants are close but not too close. Altogether a very enjoyable week.
