Liz and Bob made us feel really welcome with fresh eggs and drinks on arrival, they know the area really well and can advise you on the best areas to visit. The garden was a wonderful sun trap, very peaceful place to spend a couple of hours. The only negative thing we found is that the stairs are quite scary especially if you are bare foot as the bottom 3 steps have no carpeting so can be very slippy, also my partner and I completely missed the bottom step and fell a couple of times as the colour of the wooden step merges into the colour of the floor making you think there is not another step, maybe just highlight the bottom step so it can be seen more clearly. Overall though we had a wonderful relaxing peaceful stay ,definately go back again. Thank you for our excellent stay. Mike and Kris Oxfordshire.

All you could hope for in this lovely accommodation with a beautiful garden and it is so close to the little village. All appliances from ovens to dishwasher etc were all immaculate with instructions. Bathrooms all spotless and all worked well. Thank you to Tim and family. The scones Tim's Mum made to welcome us were also superb. Highly recommend this place.
