Cottagecwas a real home from home and very well equipped. Everything possible had been thought of. The owners are lovely and very helpful.

Fresh eggs and 'homemade' honey for sale which was delicious. Only stayed 2 nights but would have loved to stay longer. Great local pub 15 mins walk away (but definitely need a torch in the dark evenings and walking boots/shoes). James has lots of offer if you want it from guided tours of the property and guided walks. Unfortunately we didn't have the time to do this .
