We had the most GORGEOUS time! What a beautiful cottage - comfortable, well-stocked and so stylish. Dog was visibly upset when we got home again - I think she thought we were starting a new life! We were very lucky with the weather and the walks right on your doorstep are amazing - I think Dog's favourite part was the home-cooked pork scratchings tRead morehat the chef at the village pub made her specially. We'll definitely be back. xx Hide

A wonderful qwerky little cottage. Beautiful dog walks in the countryside straight out the front door. Plenty of little places to explore. The cottage itself has everything you need and is comfortable with the log burner making a real difference to an already very cosy little cottage.

Such a beautiful cottage, full of charm, it is well laid out with real style. The location is great, lots of really good walks to go on (remember to pack boots) but the surrounding towns and villages are also great to see, we will look to book again for sure.
