Relax and unwind in this wonderful bolthole for four with lovely views across the fields and over to Reydon Woods. The generous outside space catches the sunshine throughout the day and is the perfect place to enjoy, morning coffee watching the birds dance in the sky or delicious dinners all sourced from the local shops nearby. This family friendly bolthole boasts a bright and beautiful living space to enjoy quality time together. The kitchen is fully equipped with all you could need during your stay and the bedrooms are all comfortable, cosy, and ready for you to have a peaceful night’s sleep.

The cottage was warm and comfortable and beautifully furnished. It had everything we needed, was in a good location for exploring the area and we would happily return.

Mrs G,

Fabulous holiday rental. Had everything required for a perfect home from home. Only thing it was lacking was coat hangers. There were only 12 in the whole house which wouldn’t be enough if more than 2 people were staying for the week. Village pub serves fabulous food too in easy walking distance. Would stay again without a doubt.

Mr H,
