Lovely cottage in a beautiful, well kept village and the locals are so friendly. The kitchen is well equipped. Had the best nights sleep, despite the bedroom window being next to the road. The wonderful light airy dining/relaxing area giving lovely views of the garden was perfect.

Very well equipped with some lovely touches like a bowl of fruit and cookies as well as luxury hand wash in the bathroom and kitchen and a condiment cupboard with basic items like flour, gravy powder and a full spice/herb rack. Coal and logs also supplied for the open fire and wood burner. Very impressed!
