The owners care, thought and consideration for their guests comfort is something to be admired. The quality of fittings, utensils, furnishing and bedding is second to none. The cleanliness is unbelievable. I have never been anywhere and not washed the cutlery and plates before I have used them - but not here! It's immaculate. Like many, I read the reviews before I book anywhere and, for this property, with the exception of one (which of course, we have all read), they are all 5*. My Weimaraner unfortunately died a few years ago and I have never replaced him. To say this is a dog friendly cottage is an understatement. In a spacious and warm utility area, there is a very large cage and beautiful bed. By the side is a comfy settee if your dog prefers. With it's own private shower; doggie mat and towels, this is 5* accommodation for any size pooch. The request not to allow dogs upstairs or on the rest of the furniture in this property is very reasonable (and a rule I applied with my own dog at home). To ask that dogs be shut in the utility area if they are to be left alone is also reasonable and common sense; after all, we all know what they get up to once our backs are turned. To abuse these simple rules is total disrespect in my opinion, not only to the owners but also those guests who choose not to have a dog. I cannot recommend this property highly enough - with or without a dog. The communication with the owner is excellent; nothing is too much trouble and I received a lovely email and confirmation that my deposit had been refunded before I arrived home!

The location was perfect for walking out into the village and the many walks in the surrounding area. It was lovely to have flowers and cake when we arrived and there was everything we needed for our stay.

The location is wonderful right in the centre of the village alongside a beautiful church and a brilliant pub just across the Square. The local people were very friendly. There are so many places to visit within easy reach and walks around the village to enjoy. We would highly recommend this cottage and hope to return ourselves.
