We had an excellent weekend, helped by lovely weather, in a beautiful part of the country. Good walking area, scenic countryside, easy access to the coast and very friendly hosts who lived opposite. We would happily visit again. There were four of us and the facilities were superb and of high quality. Only downside is the downstairs toilet which opens into the lounge.

We really enjoyed out stay at Beech Cottage. It was clean and comfortable and quiet. The owners were friendly, helpful but not in the least intrusive. I would certainly recommend this cottage for a holiday stay.

I will sum up my holiday in five words..."I cried when I left" Personally, this was the best holiday I have ever had. I needed to relax, relax? I was almost catantonic! Just sitting on the doorstep with Mrs Thorpe's Black labrador cuddled up to me was my idea of Heaven. The cottage was better than my own house!! The location was beautiful and remote. I highly recommend this holiday cottage if you need to get away from the rat race and reflect on how lovely this country is, a million miles from the pressures of life. Go!! book now!! (Save me a fortnight)
