The remains of the 12th-13th century castle and town can be seen in several places.

This is a traditional farming community with a large market- now stuated out of town where there are regular sheep, cattle and pony sales.

"pretty cottage lovely garden"
We found having only one loo with six people not ideal. Shower could have been better only luke warm at best. on the plus side well equipt apart from toaster, lovely log burner and open fire. comfy… More
We thank you for your positive review. We can't understand why the shower was lukewarm. We visit all the time and it is always hot.The whole system was updated a couple of years ago new shower new boiler and radiators maybe we need to put in our information manual more precise instructions as to how to use the shower.
