Other guests have enjoyed staying in our spacious character cottage and have liked the pretty, peaceful village location and wonderful views. Because the village is small and away from main roads it does not have shops or a pub; but does offer lovely walks and events in the village hall. The downstairs floors and many of the walls of the cottage have been damp proofed, but in a 250 year old cottage it is impossible to ensure 100% protection. As well as the log burner, storage heaters could have been used to ensure that during the appalling wet weather we have had this August, the cottage remained warm and aired and off peak electricity for these is less than half that for general purpose use. Several additional heaters are also available in the cottage if needed. During the booking process it is made clear that logs and electricity are extras, but these are charged at cost. The trailing cable has been removed. Between lettings the cottage is always thoroughly cleaned and the lawn mown by the owner who greets guests on arrival and provides a tea tray if desired.
