Very Good

“Hidden Gem”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2020

My family stayed here for a long weekend and enjoyed every minute of it! The cottage is stunning- and attention to detail on point! Extremely spacious bedrooms with modern ensuite, fully stocked kitchen made it easy to prepare dinner for our family of adults and kids alike Very comfortable lounge area with TV and generous table at which to eat at. We visited during covid so the pub across the road was shut but we really enjoyed a quiet drink at the fireplace while watching a movie after a king day of exploring the walks around the village. Paul and Karin were just a delight to deal with- so friendly and accommodating- nothing was too much bother We will defo be returning to stay again
