What a beautiful stay cation, was recommended to me. Have spent two weeks relaxing and enjoying walking in the grounds. It was so quiet could not fault it. The bed was very comfortable, underfloor heating perfect. Would not hesitate to book to come back another time.

Nice place . Clean and comfortable . Unfortunately the underfloor heating was unadequate and we were cold . The information at the property stared the heating was set at 20c but it was 16c when we arrived and never really warm enough for comfort . Despite dialing up the thermostat the temperature never really changed .

Such a beautiful location and very well presented, clean accommodation. The site is quiet and private and the parking, very close to the cottage which is convenient. A most suitable location to enjoy sight-seeing, walking and eating out. It is possible to cook meals at the cottage with a good-sized oven, fridge, hob etc, but surface space is limiteRead mored. Be aware, if your mobility is less than ideal, that the seating is on the low side. Would definitely recommend this as a lovely get-away place. Hide
