    “Lovely clean and well equipped cottage.”

    In a very quite location, but only 2 mins walk from the town. Bedrooms are spacious and the beds are comfy. Good WiFi and TV. We cycled there and the hosts were happy for us to use their shed for storage, but we just popped our bikes round the back of the garden. Would definitely use this cottage again!!
