The cottage was well equipped and just what we needed to visit family close by and do food preparation for our grandsons party. Unfortunately I would not recommend owners direct as a booking agency as they failed to acknowledge my booking and I had to contact the owners to confirm. Owners direct have also failed to acknowledge and correspondence I have since sent to them.

Walks on the doorstep and friendly pub with good food and beer two minutes away. In heart of the countryside it's like stepping back in time, every day is like an old fashioned Sunday, hardly any traffic, lovely. It's perfect for walkers, so many choices right on the doorstep. A fabulous roll top bath at the end of the day and a wonderful shower to get you going in the morning. It was truly a perfect place , we loved it.
