Relaxed.

5 of 5
A very nice home from home. We enjoyed the location and the peace and quiet very much. On the first night of our weeks stay a small herd of deer came onto the property and stayed until they saw us watching them. Our host Wendy made us very welcome, and is able to provide lots of advice on places to go. We took advantage of our NT membership and went somewhere different each day.

Just perfect!

Thank you for a wonderful break in a wonderful location. I can't recommend the cottage highly enough. The location is so peaceful with lovely views of the rolling countryside. Once inside the cottage is decorated and equipped to a very high standard and feels very homely. We were welcomed by the family cats and met the dogs a day later, all were extremely well behaved and made it feel even more welcoming. The eggs and wine were a very kind gesture, thank you to both Richard and Becks We will definitely be visiting again.
