    “1/8/20 - 8/8/20 Fantastic little cottage, offering great value for money.”


    COVID-19 safe All measures had been met and exceeded. It felt very safe to stay there Comfortable and homely little cottage. Offering peace and quiet privacy yet conveniently located to the local village and all amenities you could need. Ideally placed for touring and sightseeing not just in the local area but also further afield We had a fantastic and enjoyable week staying at this cottage We would not hesitate to recommend it or to return again for a future stay In fact we are already planning to do so.
