    This is a delightful, quaint and quirky cottage set in a lovely rural village with a small idyllic, well maintained, pretty and secluded garden to the rear. Stunning Rose of Sharon bushes in full flower and other shrubbery provides total privacy. The garden is fully enclosed which enabled our pet to wander round at his leisure without the worry of him escaping. There was also a summerhouse with a small decked area and even a barbecue for the BBQ enthusiasts. The cottage was extremely well appointed throughout with absolutely everything thought of to make our stay as smooth and comfortable as possible. Whilst the stairs are not suitable for people with mobility issues, the bedrooms were nicely furnished with extremely comfortable beds in both rooms. Unusually, the master bedroom had a super king sized bed comprising two singles joined together and plenty of storage space. Really good sized bathroom on the ground floor with a bath and a really good, powerful shower. It was a bonus having a dining room separate from the lounge and a kitchen which also had a table and chairs. The owners Darren and Karen were very welcoming and accommodating; as was the landlord of the White Lion next door who allowed us to use his car park to avoid on street parking. We were astonished to read the negative review of the previous visitors. Quite frankly there was no evidence of the problem they referred to and there would have been. That said, why visit the countryside if you can't cope with what goes with country life. Equally the garden was certainly not overgrown - it was very much in keeping with such a lovely 15th century country cottage. We stayed for 5 days and hope to have the opportunity of staying again. We were amazed to read of the previous negative review.

    A unique cottage full of character and history, carefully restored and beautifully maintained. Its cosy nature was perfect for the snow-filled week we stayed. It is surrounded by idyllic villages and major historical centres.

    In summary the Croft proves to display a character of tradition and natural living: The good of the cottage is compromised by a metal plate close by in the road, which is a constant menace to a peaceful rest or sleep on some days.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your review. My apologies but there was a loose drain cover in the road outside the property during your stay. This has now been replaced by the council and no longer causes any problems re noise.

    We had a wonderful stay at The Croft. The cottage was stunning and equipped with everything you could possibly want. There was plenty of information on the local area, restaurants, tourist attractions etc, and the cottage was spotlessly clean. We will definitely be returning! Thank you for a fantastic stay.

    The cottage is very clean and cosy. Lots of good information for places to visit. Well equipped. It will is full of character but not ideal if you have mobility problems due to uneven steps throughout. We were fine and really enjoyed the experience of staying in a 600 year old cottage and trying to imagine the history that had taken place there. Amazing.
