Set in beautiful rural countryside with easy access to local villages and the small town of Thury-Harcourt, everything we could have possibility needed and wanted was within easy reach. After a long day exploring it was the perfect retreat to relax and reflect upon the day. Equally, our 2 young children enjoyed lazy days feeding the chickens, playing in the fields and taking leisurely walks. Peta and her husband Jason were excellent hosts and were very helpful. The cottage was spacious and quiet with excellent facilities. Looking forward to returning in the future!
