    Beautiful getaway cottage in very quiet location. Very off the beaten track, so you really must have transport and not that easy to find in the dark. Cottage has a very homely feel though and you feel relaxed from the moment you enter. The upstairs bedroom is fantastic, with loads of space and very comfortable bed. If we revisited area, would certainly not hesitate to book again.

    A lovely welcoming quiet property only downside was one of the single beds had an uncomfortable mattress and the sofas were not to our taste either . Overall these are personal issues.

    Beautifully appointed and decorated; friendly family and location good for reaching other places. Some blinds in the bedroom would be appreciated for those of us sensitive to the light! The enclosed garden/seating area is more pleasant than some places I've stayed where there is an enclosed area for the benefit of dog owners and was appreciated
