Beautiful, clean and well-equipped cottage

5 of 5
This is a lovely cottage - very comfortable and well-equipped, in a great location. The cottage is lovely and clean. The Bell pub has good food, with special nights for steaks/curry etc - get there early or book in advance! Highly recommend the Tarka Line trips with walks, there is good book with walks on the cottage bookshelf with great ideas.
