Mary Anne is the perfect host and made us feel very welcome. Would recommend for adults and families, lovely private garden with chairs and table, and the sounds of the countyside all around.

It had everything we needed and was well designed, comfortable and clean. The location was great. The centre was within walking distance and plenty of good quality shops, restaurants and pubs in the locality. The street itself is charming and has everything anyone would need for a short stay.
