Perfect Couples/ Honeymoon Getaway

5 of 5
We had a lovely warm welcome. The bed was very comfortable and the house was warm and cosy with the fire heating the whole place. The village was a short walk away and was very friendly. A number of lovely places to eat and pubs. Great views and wonderfully peaceful would love to go again!
