Lovely peaceful location and a lovely millstream rushing by. It was very well equipped and the hosts, Maggie and John , were very friendly as were their two little dogs. Handy little community shop a short walk away and a decent pub, that serves food, just on the corner. Sure we'll stay there again sometime.
