A lovely place for a little getaway, quiet, secluded and very pretty. Service was excellent and room was most comfortable. Breakfast was very nice.

Cottage lovely and warm. They accommodated our arrival time. The host and cleaning staff were very friendly. The kitchen area is a little small.

Really nice and quiet. Just out of town so close enough to the shops but far enough out to get the country feeling. We enjoyed our stay and wish we had stayed longer. Tasteful décor, simple but nice. Lovely views, with cows in the neighbouring meadows. Self-catering facilities a bit lacking, not going to cook a Christmas lunch in the kitchenette, but for a quick breakfast it's ideal.
