Stayed here with a group of friends to celebrate a 30th. Everything about the place was fantastic. The owners had left us loads of helpful bits and pieces like a bottle of milk and coffee/tea. The rooms were all well decorated, fresh and clean. The kitchen in particular with the massive ovens and loads of hobs was fabulous when cooking for a crowd.
The pub next door is friendly and there are loads of walks nearby to explore the countryside.
The courtyard with table and chairs was a really useful space for the smokers among us. It was a shame the rain was tipping down so we couldn't make the most of it.
I would heartily recommend this cottage for a group of friends or a family get together. Unlike other houses and cottages I've stayed in, the owners were really generous with pans, cutlery, glasses etc. It was a home away from home and I'm considering booking it again for this year which isn't something I would usually do.
