Lovely cottage, peaceful and secluded but not so far off the beaten track as to make it difficult to get to. Extremely well equipped and furnished and loved that the Christmas tree was still up when we booked over the New year. Great location for walking which we did and near enough to historic market town for a little retail therapy and a pint.

East Cottage is beautiful and in a lovely setting. It is very clean, well maintained and well appointed. It is in a quiet setting but close enough to the A66 for sight seeing purposes. There is plenty to see and do in the area and we would recommend this property.
