"Lovely cottage, great location"
A pretty cottage set in lovely grounds. A great location for walking. Within walking distance of good pubs serving food and a Persian restaurant we would thoroughly recommend. A very friendly owner who is always available for advise and recommendations if required. We would very much like to return and explore more of the beautiful countryside.
