lovely cottage, Ideal for a couple, very well maintained. Great pub next door which is also dog friendly. Great location but easy to get to nearby main routes. Would recommend it to anyone.
Perfect place to escape to!

This is the perfect little cottage for a bolt hole for one or two and a dog. Peaceful village, handy pub next door (the sort you can take the dog in), easy to get to, lovely woodburner and nice decor. The ducks next door were lovely to wake up to!
My only negative was the mattress was a little uncomfy - everything else was perfect
