The cottage is clean & cosy (the most comfortable bed ever) There is a train line but don't be put off - the trains are only small and don't run very often. We had one rainy day but stocked up on magazines & groceries (nearest Waitrose 20 mins away) and cosied up for the day and because the kitchen is so well maintained I was able to cook a roast dinner. My only bugbear is that I searched high & low but couldn't find the hairdryer. Also couldn't access the internet. As a word of caution for those with a large vehicle, we don't have a huge car (Vauxhall Insignia) but had to park diagonally in the garage in order to get it in. Also, bring bread - the ducks expect to be fed!
