Lovely little cottage to use as a base, excellent location in the village.

The location is perfect. It is a pity that you can't sit outside. It is a very small house, so with a few extra things the owner can make it more comfortable.

Clean & quiet with lots of entertainment not to far away. An ideal spot if you want a place to rest with no rushing around and later start in the morning.

A very comfortable cosy cottage in an excellent location. It had everything we needed for a lovely weekend. We will book again.

Reviewed by Peter 6th January 2019

It's just the most lovely cottage, in a beautiful part of the world. We had a fantastic time. The stairs might be a bit tricky if you're well over 6 foot, but we're both around 5'8" so we were fine!

Reviewed by Sheena 3rd November 2018

When we arrived, the log fire was lit, and some lamps were on, which was a nice touch. The downside was that the central heating never achieved its full heat, in spite of the owner getting a plumber to check it. Otherwise it was sufficiently well equipped, and very thoughtfully lit. The location in the village is perfect. All in all, a good choice Read morefor a couple. Hide

Pretty cottage with very little heating for an autumn holiday and the space outside the cottage belonged to next door so nowhere to sit outside. Also shower had a fixed head so couldn't use because I didn't want wet hair and no bath. Owner tried to help with heating but cottage remained mostly cold.
