This is an extremely well presented cottage with very comfy furnishings and everything that you need for a self catering holiday. We had a wonderful holiday visiting all the surrounding areas, including seaside villages; country gardens and scenic walks. Nick and Leigh who own the cottages are perfect hosts and really lovely people. Looking forward to visiting again.

Came for 3 nights with partner to chill, read, slob, eat, drink, snuggle, sleep, watch DVDs, eat chocolate - couldn't have wished for more. Scrupulously clean, well decorated, cosy, comfy, warm, everything we needed, warm welcome from Leigh and Nick, also very convenient pub in village (Green Dragon) who serve great food. Couldn't fault it.
