A Perfect Holiday Base!
The perfect holiday home whether exploring the area, or like us in town to visit family and friends. The owner Margaret made us very welcome and it was reassuring to have her living close by. The Nook has a great location in a quiet and safe residential street. Located not far from the town centre and near the local bus route. The Nook is beautifully presented, warm, clean and comfortable with the benefit of Wi-fi and TV. We visited during a particularly cold spell in April but the house was warm. The patio garden would be lovely if visiting in the summer months. We would not hesitate to recommend the Nook and hope to visit again in the future.
Lovely cottage just right for a short or long stay
Beautifully appointed and equipped with a nice courtyard garden. Excellent standard all the times I have stayed here - cosy, comfortable in winter or summer and Margaret takes a real pride in making my stays great.
Just perfect "The Nook"
Perfect little cottage, well thought out, all required amenities provided including parking, even had heated bathroom floors, just lovely, will definitely stay again.
