Honeysuckle Cottage

4 of 5
A lovely cottage in a lovely village with a very handy good pub. The location was peaceful and secluded - watch out for the narrow lanes! We did not spend a lot of time in the cottage but I would not hesitate to return.

One word "Impressive"

5 of 5
A great property. Prefect for a family gathering or just to get away and enjoy the peace. Tranquil atmosphere with a nice stream. Wonderful BBQ area and fun activities available to enjoy. We had so much fun. Looking forward to returning there again.
