Customer Comments

  1. For a short break for five sisters and husbands, this property was perfect. Great for big family get togethers, plenty of space, bedrooms galore, and even three big dogs had room to play! Aug 2012.
  2. Local pubs do great food, and are very welcoming. House is very old and quirky. We were lucky to have excellent weather in March and so were able to sit outside and admire the gardens and watch the horses in the field. Lots of off road paths which were well marked. March 2012.
  3. Very traditional cottage with lots of character - it has beams across the ceilings and wood fires. Ideal for a large group of friends - the main living room, kitchen and dining room were very large. Feb 2012.
