A lovely flat, well looked after and in a handy location in the beautiful village of Godshill. Car parking is a short walk away, but free. The landlords are handy and helpful, but unobtrusive.

We found the village to be central to all places we wanted to visit. The cottage was very comfortable with plenty of room. It was great having a back garden space to take the dog out at night. We parked at the top of the hill, recommended by Astrid which was great. We had a lovely time.
