We had a lovely stay at Forest Corner. It was a very spacious, well-equipped house that easily accommodated 5 adults and 2 under-5s. The location was excellent, being in a quiet village but within about 40 minutes of all the attractions that we wanted to visit. There was plenty of walking opportunities from the house or within a few minutes' drive.Read more We ate at the pub a couple of times and were not disappointed.

Forest Corner is a wonderfully well-equipped house. There is plenty of everything: seating, crockery and cutlery, glasses, cooking equipment, outside furniture ... and beautifully comfortable beds, linen and towels. If there is one thing to comment on, it is that apart from the ensuite shower room, there is only one more bathroom which can get a biRead moret busy when everyone wants showers. However, that is a small hitch in somewhere so beautiful and importantly, there are a total of four toilets. Hide
