Lovely property. Very peaceful and beautiful views. Clean and well equipped. Owners very welcoming and helpful. Ideal area for walking and visiting local villages. Would certainly recommend.

Very comfortable cottage with a private aspect, facing open fields. Equipment and facilities were of a high standard. The property has underfloor heating and initially was not very warm considering the outside temperature was very low. However, the owners responded to our concern and the issue was resolved in a couple of days.
