Spacious, flexible open-plan living on the top floor, and lovely comfortable and peaceful (well, apart from the odd sheep!) bedrooms downstairs. Short distance to a friendly little pub in the same village that serves decent food, and fantastic walks on your door-step. Without doubt we shall return! It is worth noting though that many of the roads in the immediate locality a pretty narrow and could concern a nervous driver especially at busy holiday times. That said, they present no problem if approached carefully.
