      We stayed here for two nights. The cottage was very well equipped and clean. They provided us with plenty of wood for the fireplace to keep it warm and were wonderful and helpful. Would definitely come back in future!

      Charming place with a breathtaking garden. Very warm and welcoming hosts. It was a wonderful stay in a lovely village. One day poured with rain and the inside fire made a cosy lazy afternoon, while the garden was a treat when the sun came out. Everything you need is there. A few too many ornaments and things inside - hard to find place to put our own things!
