This was just the perfect little holiday home, Tasha and family (the owner) were very helpful and on site if you needed anything. The cottage itself was very cosy and clean and the underfloor heating and log burner were perfect for the time of year! We arrived and we had a few welcome treats, biscuits, dog treats, orange juice, milk and a few otherRead more essentials which was just a lovely thought. The Garden was fabulous for our puppy and village 5 minute drive away & lots of walks a short drive away. Hide

Lovely well equipped small cottage, clean and tidy and instant home from home. Very roomy inside due to open plan layout in main room. The large secure garden was ideal for our dog. Secure off road parking and good location for the local attractions.

Lovely cottage, nice to meet the owners who were friendly but not intrusive. Welcome treats for us and our dog much appreciated. We enjoyed the use of the large garden, plenty of sun and shade, especially nice to sit at the picnic table in the evening sun after a long day out. Would happily stay again.
