"Peaceful retreat, comforable & fully equipped"
A great base for all the local attractions. Plenty of walks in forests & beside rivers. The owners were friendly and helpful. The property has every thing you will need, plus a good selection of DVDs should you be rained in. There isn't a huge amount of workspace in the kitchen but the local pub is a few minutes walk away & the food there was lovely. We would definitely stay there again.

The studio has everything you need including a really good stocked kitchen, it is really cosy and comfortable and in an excellent location. Helen and Neil were so helpful and were happy to answer any of our questions and made the stay really enjoyable. We would definitely go back!
