    The cottage was ideally placed. Never very far from other places to visit. The pub just down the road served fantastic food.

    Townsend Cottage was both spacious and very comfortable. A bit of a walk to the pub as it is situated at the other end of the village! Locals are very friendly and the owner of the cottage couldn't be nicer. We loved it!

    We had a lovely time in this gorgeous cottage in it's quiet location. Very homely, cosy place, very warm, and the rooms quite spacious, more so than the photos show. Thanks so much for accommodating us all. Hope to be back again.
