    Lovely, tranquil location, fresh air and birdsong and a play area for the kids close by make this a wonderful spot for time to yourself /yourselves and time out. The wood fire is welcome in autumn!

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We loved the property and also the outlook from the property into the garden, it was a very peaceful spot. It was great to be able to take the dogs along! I had struggled to find places that allowed dogs previously. (Also wanted to add we found the double bed exceedingly comfortable!) Thank you!
