Lovely house in village. Very quiet location.
House is in a very small quiet village. Very comfortable furnishings and beds. Fully equipped kitchen with aga. Lovely and clean. Lots of outside seating areas, great for eating breakfast/dinner and listen to the birds . Tv, DVD, music centre, books and films to read and watch are there for you to use.
So relaxing we extended our stay.
Gorgeous house with a relaxing atmosphere. Stunning views from the bedrooms and as you walk through the very quiet village.
The house is very spacious and has everything you need. The office was very useful for the occasions I needed to work.
The bed in the Master bedroom was huge and very comfortable. The range in the kitchen was easy to use and very walming as the weather got chillier!
Lovely location and pub 5 minutes walk served good food with friendly staff.
Thank you so much! We're delighted that you enjoyed our cottage and its surroundings, and that you found everything you needed. We love it too!
