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.

The location is idyllic, quiet and perfect for a relaxing and romantic getaway. We were particularly impressed by the attention to detail e.g. Bottles of wine on arrival and things to make a hearty breakfast the following morning. It is a quiet location and although there is a pub in the next village (about 20 minutes walk) the accomodation is so beautiful we preferred to stay for cosy evenings in. The owner Mark is attentive without being intrusive; at the time of our stay work was being carried out in the adjoining building but we hardly noticed. We would thoroughly recommend this property and will definitely be returning.

All is here and just perfect for our family of mum, dad, teenage and older son and girlfriend, pet friendly too. Opportunity for great walks in the local area. Deborah was very helpful in providing recommendations for day trips and local pubs. Will definitely return.
