    Lovely dog friendly residence. Local corner shop within a few minutes walk is very handy. Owners very warm and welcoming.

    Great little cottage, owners were lovely, we received a very warm welcome with yummy goodies that was very appreciated! Everything was there that you could possibly need, with a homely touch. Cottage was quite remote, although the village was extremely friendly. Unfortunately there isn't a pub anymore, there is however a Sports Hall that does drinks & pub food once a week, but it's not within walking distance in the pouring rain! The village shop is the main source of meeting place, where we met some lovely people. Thank you to our hosts

    Picturesque village with very friendly people. The hosts were very polite and welcoming and there welcome pack very much appreciated, there was even something for our dog. The accommodation was ideal for us and had everything to hand that we needed, we would highly recommend it. The community run shop and sports club house were great but it is a shame that there was not that ever demanding village pub. Our hosts were perfect as in informing us of what was going on and what was around with the right amount of contact, not imposing and not distant. We would love to return and as said earlier we highly recommend.
