"This is our ideal holiday cottage"
The cottage is very comfortable and has all we need. We've been coming here for years.
Great location only a mile or so from town (pubs, restaurants, shops and excellent local brewery!) but well off the beaten track. My daughter is horse crazy so there's plenty on the farm to keep her entertained. Great walking country. The owners are very helpful and friendly. Favourite things - log stove in the autumn evenings and, of course, the horses. Least favourite thing - rural internet and mobile speeds (but it is the country after all!)
