    Lovely cottage in a great location with walks from the door. Great 180 degree views across the valley to wake up to & gardens back & front. Everything you need a few minutes walk away in the village, yet nothing to be heard but birdsong. Very friendly local people in a dog friendly area. Cosy inside throughout Storm Jorge!

    Lovely cottage in a beautiful area. Curlew Cottage is comfortable and has every amenity you could need. Superbly equipped kitchen, including dishwasher. Comfy bed, nice bathroom, washer/dryer and cottage has very effective heating if weather is cold. Lovely gardens, and if you are taking dogs, a secure area for them to roam. There are so many places to visit nearby that we only had an introduction to the area in our weeks' stay. Kitchen and Dining Room are downstairs from main living area and have low ceiling height. At 5' 11" we were fine in kitchen, but less so in the dining room, which we did not use.
