A wonderful centrally positioned, comfortable, very dog-friendly cottage (enclosed courtyard at the rear and gated garden at the front) with hose point for paw cleaning. It has a cosy, traditional ambience allied with all mod-cons. Good space for two humans and a dog all of whom had a great time.

Well appointed and very cosy, we were particularly relieved to find that the garden and patio areas to the front and rear were enclosed sufficient to prevent our small dog from going where she shouldn't. Great access to footpaths and bridleways and a first class pub The Chequers is a fifteen minute walk away.
