Lovely Lockwood River Cottage

 Excellent spot for a couple of old fisherman who enjoyed an excellent weekend -- a very warm and tidy lockwood cottage, well presented and fully equipped. Well positioned to take advantage of a variety of excellent fishing opportunities and lock up gate good for boat owners.

Time for a break - we have just the thing

 Very nice accommodation in a very quiet and peaceful area. The accommodation is very clean and cosy. Excellent rate for what the owners offer in their holiday home away from home. It also has a very nice 'feel'.
