There were six of us altogether, plus my other brother's flat-coated retriever. We ate, drank, cooked, laughed and walked, starting and ending each day around the kitchen table basking in the Aga's warmth. The views and walks from the cottage are second to none, the Royal Oak with an excellent menu of home-cooked food is welcoming and well within staggering distance. The owners were away when we stayed but emailed everything we needed, and their delightful neighbour was there to greet us and ensure all was well. Comfortable beds, good towels, ample cooking equipment (including sharp knives!) and lashings of hot water made us feel as though we were spoiled guests rather than holiday renters. Lucy's Wood is a special place, and will stay with us.
