A lovely cosy, warm cottage! There was enough room for everyone to eat and sit together and the cottage was beautifully decorated for the festive season. Gorgeous original features including a fabulous stair case! Well equipped kitchen, and generous welcome hamper. Plenty of parking. Owners live near by and are really responsive to messages!

Lovely cosy cottage in a beautiful setting surrounded by fields with horses. Perfect location to celebrate a murder mystery 60th birthday gatsby style with family and dogs. Unfortunately public footpaths came to an abrupt end so you'll need to go further afield for a good dog walk. Thank you for the lovely fresh eggs, bread and milk. A hidden gem.

We were a family of five adults and two dogs and found the cottage to be spacious both inside and out. It was well equipped for the one night we cooked in. Difficult to walk anywhere direct from the cottage meaning we had to drive out to walk the dogs. Beds were really comfy .

Great cottage. Well equipped kitchen, beds fine. Garden wraps around and is mostly dog secure - one side has thick hedge rather than fence so always keep an eye on your dog, you always do anyway!) but our Labrador didn't notice and it wasn't a problem. Ample off-road parking. Internet 40mb down/7mb up and stable. WiFi reached all areas of the houseRead more we used. Stairs steep and wobbly. Front bedrooms require going up further twisty stairs so if you have mobility issues consider rear bedrooms. Hide
