With all the walking/cycling we did while we were here it was so lovely to have a comfortable peaceful place to call home for the week. Sitting in the garden with a glass of wine after a days walking was just bliss! The house has everything you could think of, one of the best equipped we've ever stayed in...I hope we will be back!

Stunning area, perfect for walks, lots to see and do. The owners are very helpful. They are situated next door, so anything you need you only have to ask. Very comfortable with all the amenities you will need for a lovely family holiday.

Lovely quiet village with warm welcoming locals. South Cottage is right in the centre of the village perfectly located opposite the George Public House and around the corner from the Kennedys Chocolate factory and coffee house. We travelled out a few days during our week as its a great base and when the weather was poor we lit the fire and stayed in playing games that were supplied. We were a family of three and found it ideal for us, but would be even more perfect for a couple especially those who enjoy walking. Lovely break overall will definitely return.
