A very comfortable cosy little cottage. Underfloor heating throughout was great as we visited in November. Very dog friendly, owners were friendly and helpful. Location was excellent with plenty of places nearby to walk the dog. Most pubs dog friendly. The local pub The Black Horse serves up very good hearty meals as does the Four Horseshoes in Thornham Magna. We had a very pleasant few days in this lovely county.

Fabulous holiday in The Old Cow Shed. Clean and comfortable. Great location for local walks and for exploring area. Great accommodation to relax in. We travelled by car. We did a click and collect on our journey up from Kent and ate in, so did not use local community shop. We would love to return.
