I became the owner of this cottage in May 2011. It had previously been extensively refurbished and let out by the previous owner and I am delighted that her 'regulars' continue to stay. I fell in love with it as soon as I walked in and hope you will do, too. I am a keen walker so have provided maps, walk and cycle route books as well as flask, picnic boxes and a map case. I know how precious holidays are and am happy to help if I can with suggestions of where to visit etc . I publish a regular newsletter (available via my website) with suggestions of things to do/see and there’s lots of information – much of it personally researched available at the cottage. I have a local firm who are on hand to deal with maintenance and housekeeping. Unfortunately I cannot take payment by credit card (the charges are just too prohibitive) and the rates shown on this website are only the base rate; they vary according to season – full details are downloadable via my web (or I can email you a list).

So well situated (behind the butcher) and well equipped with all the 'white goods' you require such as a dishwasher/washing machine, you can cook as if at home! Beautiful views out nearly every window, you are mesmerised by the river under the balcony. … See more
