"Wonderful, well-equipped cottage with good local amenities"

An exceptionally well equipped cottage with wonderful walks from the doorstep. Warm, clean and cosy. Owners are very helpful. Dog-friendly but equally good without a canine friend, as we were - you would not know that visitors with dogs had been there - it is so clean and comfortable. Good local pubs within walking distance with very tasty food. You can quickly walk to the village shop over the footpath - all necessities, local produce and excellent crusty bread. Well situated for exploring but also relaxing just to sit in the garden or curl up with a book by the fire. Highly recommended!
