Lovely little cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the Rivendell cottage during our half term, the cottage was clean and tidy and had all the little creature comforts needed to make our stay pleasureable.

We couldn’t fault anything with it at all, the only thing I will say is that the main road was very busy.

We had a lovely meal at the Middleton arms during our stay which i would highly recommend too. We would definitely revisit the cottage.
