The cottage is very cosy - not ideal for tall people! But very comfortable and in a great location if you enjoy walking - easy access to towns and interesting villages with plenty of walks nearby.

The stone fireplace is a real feature and created a romantic atmosphere for a late evening in on our 47th wedding anniversary. The size of the television is more than adequate,...
