    Julian and Penny are very welcoming, yet discreet, hosts. The user guide was the most comprehensive, detailed and useful of the many we have seen. The welcome pack and additional items were a most thoughtful and appreciated touch. The mattress was a little soft for our comfort, but we understand this is subjective. The front doormat sheds coir which is somewhat impractical and adds to the general dust associated with old buildings. The security provides peace of mind and the location is most relaxing. We had a lovely two week stay and would return.

    Having just spent a week in Walnut Cottage, we found it to be a compact well equipped holiday let which is clean, warm, well presented, and ideal for two people. The owners have obviously given a lot of thought to the needs and comforts of their tenants and we enjoyed our stay there immensely. We will probably return at some point as we have relatives in the area who we visit now and then. Also, although this does not apply to us, the accommodation is all on one level making it ideal for anyone with a disability that prevents them from climbing stairs.
