A real home from home

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage. Spacious, well equipped, clean and well thought out.

Full size kitchen - not a small corner of the living space as is common in many holiday cottages.

The photographs really do not do this property justice - it's much nicer than it appears!

We hope to return - what better recommendation?

Thank you

Very clean and comfortable cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in a "village" setting and could not get over how quiet it was. The cottage was lovely, the web pictures don't do it justice. Very clean and comfortable with everything you could need.

The Crown along the road is dog friendly and serves excellent food.

A perfect base for exploring the area.
