We were referred here by Gilly's friend and neighbor, Joyce, because Hearthstone Farm was booked. It might have been our second choice, but it isn't second-rate. We had a huge room with an adjoining sitting room. It's very quiet. There is a pub and restaurant (http://jugandglasslea.co.uk/) in Lea that is withing crawling distance. Across the pasture, a couple stiles, through the woods, across a bridge, right turn and a couple doors down. Maybe ten minutes.
