The proper type is a lovely property and spotlessly clean. The location is ideal for sightseeing around the areastern. The Bell Inn is an excellent place to eat and drink.

Beautiful, clean and well-equipped cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cottage - very comfortable and well-equipped, in a great location. The cottage is lovely and clean. The Bell pub has good food, with special nights for steaks/curry etc - get there early or book in advance!

Highly recommend the Tarka Line trips with walks, there is good book with walks on the cottage bookshelf with great ideas.
