    What a great cottage,it has everything you need and more.the village has enough shops and eateries you don't have to go out of the area if you just want to get away from it all.we would definitely goback at sometime in the future.

    I have stayed at this cottage several times and it never disappoints. It had everything you need to have a comfortable stay. There are local shops within a few minutes walk. The local area is excellent for dog walking and the disused railway is ideal as it’s flat for miles in both directions. Within a few minutes drive you are in some amazing countryside which again offer some beautiful walks. The beds are very comfortable and as I said there is everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay. I will definitely be returning very soon.
