  • “A wonderful cottage of a very high standard with every comfort, making it the perfect stay.”

    ...

    For us it exceeded our expectations by being a larger size cottage with an added sun room, having a separate utility room (useful for storing our cycling equipment) and with the bonus of a second toilet in the utility room. The location is perfect with the owner's house fronting the High street and the cottage set back in the grounds away from the road, giving a feeling of being in the countryside but with the convenience of a local shop, 2 public houses and 2 coffee shops within easy walking distance. It is a pretty village and there are plenty of walks and good routes for cycling nearby. There was a handy store for housing our bikes and we were encouraged to wander freely about the extensive well kept garden. Although the cottage has it's own section of garden, we never actually used it as the grounds were so beautiful and peaceful. The hosts were friendly, making us feel at home and giving us good local tips. This is somewhere that we would happily stay again as there was so much to see and do without having to travel too far.
