    Reviewed 24 January 2017

    We stayed 6 nights in the self-catering unit, and it was exactly what we were after. Very clean and comfortable, light-filled, secluded and peaceful. Highlights were the home-baked bread, the delightful family of wrens in the garden, and the lovely hosts, Liz and Nigel.More

    Stayed overnight and the hosts went beyond expectations to accommodate us. They directed us towards local eateries and antique shops. We would not hesitate to recommend to other travellers. Nice breakfast too.
