A wonderful, individual and quirky home to spend time reading the books, looking at the historical artefacts and just enjoy the peace!!

A nice cottage in a quiet village within easy driving distance of large towns. The 3rd bedroom only has a very small bed in it suitable for a child. The conservatory is a nice feature. Plenty of towels/blankets supplied.

An absolute hub of serenity. You feel as if you have stepped back in time and entered a world of curiosities. The Victorian conservatory is the best place to sit, reading and falling asleep.

Simply a love!y cosy experience. Just kick off your shoes and relax. Peace, quiet, and friendly neighbours. Bygone bits all around, always something new to find. And don't mention lazy afternoons stretched out in the conservatory. Find somewhere else like it, if you can.

An interesting olde worlde cottage. The facilities are all up to date and work perfectly. However, anyone considering this property should be aware of its old world charm. This can be seen in the pictures. We loved it.
