Beautiful Cottage

4 of 5
We had a lovely stay at this cottage. Very clean and I love to Cottage decor especially the large bedroom very pretty Cottage style. So many walks and cycle paths on your door step and the White Lion is the nearest pub which serves great food. We sat by the open fire most nights playing board games and the hospitality at the pub was excellent. Thank you :0)

This is a very beautiful little place which feels safe and very clean and has been refurbished to a very high standard. The owner was most helpful and pleasant and I would love to spend some time here again. Highly recommended.
