This is a lovely little cottage. It is placed perfectly as it is close to all that you need. My husband loves cycling around the country also and there are plenty of hills to challenge him. We love the open plan kitchen and living room. Everything you need is in it. The laundry room is very handy. Fabulous shower too. I am a bit reluctant to let others know of this place because when we are back in the area it might not be available. But the owners are nice and we would like to see them do well with the place.
