    A fascinating cottage in a fascinating village it was a far more than just a well appointed holiday let. The owners were friendly and helpful with the added amusement of their Shetland ponies in the adjoining paddock. The adjacent pub served good quality meat in their generous meals and the newly opened restaurant was eager to please.
