    Set in a beautiful location and cared for by a lovely host. We felt st home from the moment we arrived. The only things we missed a little was a dishwasher, but we had plenty of volunteers to take care of that. Overall it was an enjoyable stay.

    A fabulous cottage in a very peaceful location, spotlessly clean. The owner Jane made an effort to pop by and meet us which was lovely.

    Although our stay was unexpectedly abreviated, the charm of the place was not lost on us. As we had been advised by attentive owner Jane that we might, we did indeed see hares in the adjacent wheat field, a treat at indeed for Londoners. Abundant aural evidence of bird life in full Spring mode. Would happily recommend the place to others who enjoy rural peace.
