  • “A lovely little bolt hole in a beautiful area.”

    Very clean and comfortable property with everything you needed. The village has lots of facilities including a couple of pubs, an Italian restaurant, a Chinese take away, and a couple of shops that sell everything. Jackie, the owner, was most helpful and just at the end of the phone if needed.
