very comfortable cottage, friendly owners living next door, clean and fully functional. Quiet village setting (with pub!) Central to lots of nice places to visit, shops within short drive. Lovely countryside. My dog also had a lovely time, she now know what a horse is!

The owners were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble. The cottage was very spacous, very clean, plenty of heating available along with lots of hot water. The area was very picturesque , even in November, very quiet but close enough to interesting / walking areas to be convenient. The environment was perfect for us with the lovely countryside, the horses on the site, the owners obvious love of animals, it was infact a real home from home and there was nothing we were either dissatisfied with or even slightly unhappy with.
