When we arrived we were not disappointed, the decor and the views were absolutely beautiful and we were welcomed by a friendly face who was more then happy to help with any questions we had. My only regret is that we did not stay in the other cottage which is owned my Richard and his family, which is a 1 minute walk from where we stayed. I have told friends and family about this beautiful Mill house and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a quiet weekend away in a beautiful place.

There were 8 adults but we found we had plenty of room and the sleeping arrangements worked perfectly for us. The size of the main lounge is amazing, with the added bonus of a smaller lounge if required. Although the kitchen is quite small everything we needed was provided and we managed to cook Christmas dinner with no problems. The area is beautiful with plenty of walks and the village is very pretty. The 2 pubs are friendly and serve good food and beer and the shop is perfect for groceries etc. (The pasties were gorgeous!) All in all a fabulous place for a family holiday.
