Stunning-Highly recommended!

5 of 5
Beautifully restored and tastefully decorated cottage which was so well equipped and spotlessly clean .The cottage was centrally located which enabled us to explore the northern and southern coastal regions. Such gracious and accommodating hosts -we loved staying here and will definitely return !

Didn’t want to leave!

5 of 5
We all loved the peace and quiet of The Spinney and didn’t want to leave. We were met by the owner Alison upon arrival who showed us around and even had some tea and coffee and milk for us. Everything you could have wished for in your own home was here and was always of very high quality. The bedrooms were spacious and very well furnished and we all agreed they were very comfortable. There are 2 spacious bathrooms one with a bath and both having very good showers in them. The conservatory is a real sun trap! And leads out towards the enclosed private garden. There are plenty of places to visit all within a reasonable travelling time and some very nice places to eat a short distance away, not to mention the nearby coastal areas as well. All in all it was the perfect place to relax in and get away from it all. So much so we are planning already for next year! Five stars for Alison and The Spinney.
