Fresh eggs, milk and bread were waiting for us when we arrived - very nice. There is also a large secure field which our dog loved running around in. We enjoyed some lovely walks and visited the surrounding area and local pubs (nearest one 5 minutes away), all were dog friendly. Phillipa and Neil made us feel very welcome and we would definitely recommend this cottage and would have no hesitation in returning. Thank you

The building itself is beautifully restored with an amazing inglenook fire, and stunnung bedroom. It is small, but I think this makes it wonderfully cosy and perfect for two people. The cottage was well equipped and spotlessly clean. The garden was lovely and well maintained. There were nice little touches like fresh eggs, milk in the fridge, fresh flowers on the table and a bottle of wine. I really couldn’t fault the place at all. We enjoyed our time there so much that we are already talking about booking the larger barn and bringing the kids back. There is so much to do locally, and some really nice country pubs.
