There was everything you needed for a very comfortable break. Great local amenities including a community run local shop as well as an all important pub very close by. We travelled easily to various National Trust places. There were also great eating places in surrounding villages /towns. We were totally delighted with this lovely village where the locals were very friendly. We're definitely going back.
