“Great little hideaway”

Reviewed 20 Oct 2013

This is a lovely, beautifully appointed, little holiday home. We found that, despite its small size, it had everything we needed and it is situated in an unique English village. There was plenty to do and see in the vicinity and we were blessed with pretty good weather. Friendly, helpful owner.

“beautiful”

Reviewed 15 Oct 2013

It may look as if you have booked a stay in a garage but when you get inside it is a very tastefully, well equiped little hideaway. There is a little courtyard to have a glass of wine or if you want to look at the view of the village you can sit out the front. The village has no street lights so take a torch if you plan to walk to the wonderful Hambro Arms, where you can have a lovely meal or a drink. The village is totally unique, whitewashed cottages lining a quiet road, the only noise was an owl. We had a restful stay and enjoyed this beautiful place. We will be going back. If there were any negative points it was that I could not have an open window in the bedroom area but that was all.
