Lynda and Simon were very welcoming and gave us great advice and recommendations for the local area and further afield. Would recommend this gite and area without hesitation.

The cottage is sympathetically restored, comfortable, charming and well equiped; except for no ice making facility (G&Ts). Lillie was very helpful. The village and area is beautiful and interesting with much to see and do. The food, wine and people are all great.
