A lovely well appointed cottage in a beautiful village
The Cottage was tastefully decorated and very well appointed. We had a lovely first few days but sadly The Beast From The East spoilt the remainder of our holiday as we were snowed in and anxiety of food running out and getting home was stressful. Thank goodness for the owners DVD’s! and the local Jolly Fisherman pub came in handy too. Due to the extreme cold we weren’t as warm as we’d have liked at first soon getting through the curtesy basket of logs and £40 worth we’d bought. The owners were very helpful and pointed out there was an electric fire and that saved us. We did feel the property would benefit from proper central heating to supplement the log burner in very cold weather. The owners were in constant touch with us which was reassuring and felt they couldn’t have done more given we were cut off. Wouldn’t let this stop us from going back just not this time of year again.

Lovely property in fab location. Would definitely stay again.
