Me and my partner stayed here and had a magnificent week away, the owners were lovely and the cottage was perfect for us.
The view from the garden was amazing, would love to go their again in the summer.
Lovely cottage but difficult for oldies due to stone steps down

My wife fell off the bottom step down to the front door and sprained her ankle before we even started the week's holiday. The spiral staircase to the bedroom was noted as a risk for small children but not mentioned for older people. We managed the staircase with care and it was not a problem, but the outside steps were not good, as mentioned above. Outside hand-rail only half-way down the steps. A pity because the cottage itself was lovely and the owners were really nice people. Despite the problems it was a good holiday cottage overall. We enjoyed our stay there.
