The Level Crossing Keepers Cottage is set in a rural position, in a quiet valley, beside a river and a stream. It was built in the 1880's to provide a home for the level crossing keeper. With the closure of the railway in the 1960's it took on a peaceful & quiet existence. It is built of stone with thick walls, possibly by a water-miller given it's tolerance for the river close to which it stands. It is covered in clematis in the spring and roses in the summer. From all the windows are lovely views of the river, the fields, the woods or the garden. It is set in a deep valley through which a river and stream runs. The river runs one side of the house and the stream the other. It is surrounded by meadows and old woodland.

"Lovely unspoilt cottage. Cosy with blankets and eiderdowns."

This is a proper country cottage. Unspoiled by modern contraptions, and with all the basic necessities, lovely antique furniture, unfitted kitchen, willow pattern china. A red panelled cosy bathroom, … More

We booked this cottage for a family break (2 adults and 2 kids) over half term. We were sold on the lovely setting and character of the property on the website. We wanted somewhere that we could rel… More

"Beautiful location dirty house and unsafe for elderly"

We stayed here in June and when I booked it, it stated nothing of steep staircase to access the kitchen. It only got worse as my 70 year old mother fell down them and ended up in hospital. Cupboards s… More

We were sorry to hear that an elderly guest had an accident. And are disappointed with this review. We sent two emails shortly after the stay in response to her note, expressing our concern for the guest. We remain disappointed that she did not acknowledge them at all. We have rented our riverside family cottage for over 50 years to guests across many ages and backgrounds. The cottage dates from the 1880's so enjoys features that are lacking in a modern building. It benefits from annual re-decorating and we have many guests who have been repeat visitors for over 20 years - all of whom provide positive feedback. Undoubtedly it won't be to some guests' liking and our peak summer rate is £11 per person per night, which remains well below the average. We are delighted to share our cosy rural riverside cottage with guests who enjoy traditional cottage living.

"Beautiful cottage in idyllic surroundings"

We booked this very last minute but were able to stay for the last two nights of the summer holidays with our three children (16, 14 and 10). The cottage is in a really wonderful spot, it is a classic… More
