Interaction with guests
John & Melanie welcome each guest personally and are usually on-site to help you get the very most from your stay (and to feed the birds!). We have lived in the area since 1997 and can advise the best walks, places to visit,
restaurants, local attractions, etc. and show you them on an Ordnance Survey map (which you may borrow). We can help light the fire in your cottage, show you how to keep it going, and liaise with local businesses - and we always have some special offers for our guests.

Loved it! A lovely, simple cottage in a really quiet, beautiful location with excellent pub, good dog walks and local shop all a walk away. Both of us and our dog thoroughly enjoyed our week here. The owners are very helpful and friendly too. We'll be back definitely!

Just got back from a short break at Wisteria Cottage, and am pleased to report it was all we had hoped for. Light, airy, and flooded with sunshine in the daytime, warm and very cosy in the evenings. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need. The bed was oh so comfy. You had your own little patio and garden,...
