Prepare delicious meals for the family in the sunny kitchen, which features pastel units, wooden floors and beech worktops, before dining at the table in the lounge/diner next door. With a vaulted ceiling, exposed trusses, shuttered windows and a door opening onto the garden, this is a fantastic room for relaxing both day and night. For rainy days there is a small library of books and a selection of games as well as a vast collection of DVDs so when you’re not snuggled up on one of the plump sofas in front of your favourite film, step outside to dine al fresco on the charming patio area.

Wonderful cottage in a pretty little village. The kitchen is very well equipped if you like quiet evenings eating in. Plenty of entertainment available as well from DVDs to a Hi-Fi system. Also lots of walks around the area and places to visit. We would not hesitate to book the cottage again in the future.
