  • There's nothing not to love about this outstanding accommodation

    There's nothing not to love about this outstanding accommodation. Such a peaceful relaxing country setting yet within easy walking distance of a great supermarket, riverside historic pub and main St. The house and gardens have been meticulously maintained & everything is so clean & tastefully presented. The original paintings were a definite highlight as was the opportunity to pick the most beautiful tasting fruit straight of the trees, soak up the sun on the balcony & comfy beds.
