We stayed in Aunt Clara's cottage, a few door down from the main house. We had everything we needed, all modern comforts but the setting was spectacular. Our hosts (Ron and Eleanor) were wonderful and welcoming and provided us with so much information, local history and advice. Well worth the stay.

Beautiful house - like staying in a stately home but with all the facilities you need. Room in the main house with the extra bedroom ideal for a family with older children. Lovely traditional breakfast. Owners very welcoming and helpful. Short walk to town centre.
