Lovely friendly hosts and excellent accommodation - comfortable, clean, warm, everything we needed, in a lovely setting. All on one level, with walk-in shower, so suitable for anyone who finds steps difficult.

A perfect oasis - combination of self catering and B&B in beautiful quiet surroundings Owners attentive and helpful - even gave us a lift back to the pub to pick up car! Not suitable for young children Near to village where there is a pub and restaurant ( not too brilliant tho')

“The cottage is at the bottom of the garden and gives you the feeling of being on your own, it is very quiet other than for the sounds of nature. The suite is attached to the main house, it is effective and aesthetically pleasing.”
