    A very comfortable well equipped cottage. Comfortable king size bed. The local pub was full of character but with limited opening times and menu but the pizzas were good. No local shops. One of the best cottages we've stayed at.

    Well-equipped, comfortable cottage in quiet village. Clean and modern. Handy for local walks and days out. The Sainsbury's delivery van found us.
