Cosy cottage for 2
We stayed for 5 nights in August the cottage is very traditional and very comfortable. It's in a great area and has good walking routes without having to use the car. It is fantastic if you want to self cater but there is a pub opposite that has a lovely garden and a great curry night on Tuesdays we also tried the Bulls Head in the village and found the food really nice better than your average pub .. The cottage has a little garden that was perfect for sitting in after tea with a glass of wine and a good book. We found the internet good and even managed to get some football on it which we can never do at home so that was a bonus. We would recommend it to anyone and hopefully we will be staying there again very soon.
Thank you so much for the positive review. :).
We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay.
We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Suited our needs to a tee....

Very small, stairs difficult to negotiate, garden small brick yard, a raised shingle section for 2 c
Very nice area with good access to lots of interesting places. Cottage very old fashioned, could do with update. Wood burner had corroded section leaving inside open to room. If we had wanted heating this would have been a danger to use.
Thank you for your feed back and we take these on board. We have had such good reviews previously.
We assume you had a nice stay and everything was clean and everything needed was provided which is good.
Thank you for staying with us.
Very cozy cottage !
This cottage is a very nice place to stay for single person or a couple ! All you will need is there, it's quiet and peaceful, there's a cozy little place to sit outside, perfect wifi, a very friendly neighbour and a great pub across the street. And Simon, the nice owner, always gave all the information that I asked for, a very helpfull person. So if I'm ever in that area again, I would definitely choose to stay in the same place!
