Gorgeous pet friendly cottage
Had a lovely long weekend stay with 2 children and 2 dogs. Nice touch to have Easter cakes and Cadbury’s eggs for the children. Would definitely recommend staying. Loved the traditional feactures of the cottage!

New year stay
We stayed here over the new year. It was a nice property but we felt it was a bit tired and needed some TLC. Not really worth the money. When we got there, there was no one there to show us round etc. We had a problem with the front door, we were locked out and there was no key for the back door! Fortunately the very nice neighbour helped us and fetched the lady that looks after the property. The situation wouldn't of been so annoying if the the owner hadn't known about the door problem! But he did, apparently it wasn't the first time? The owner was away over the new year, this would of been nice to know.
Great Character Cottage.
The cottage was just what was required, it was very cosy and well appointed. The village is quiet and very restful.
The owners were very friendly and helpful and made our stay enjoyable..
Will definitely use again and recommend ot others.
