Nothing at all. This is a rural property with rural charm. A truly magical property. The use of the field belonging to the owner on his property which was phenomenal, Mrs Pert welcomes you on Monday so youve 2 days to see if you need anything. Communication prior to our stay was fantastic. Roads are tight, but we found a wider route in and out. RemRead moreember its rural thats what your booking so country roads are part of the experience.

Ideal cottage for a quiet holiday. Very comfortable and clean with all amenities, including private garden and veranda. Be aware that it is a rural location with narrow country lanes and high hedges.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful setting. Very well equipped and comfy, although the garden furniture could do with an upgrade. Approx 1.5 miles from the nearest proper road down single tracks with high hedges, not great if you are a nervous driver. If tranquility is what you want then this is the place for you.

The cottage is lovely and quiet situated in the county. It has it's own garden which is safe for dogs and a nearby field for the morning/evening walk. The local roads are single track with high hedges so not for the faint hearted but well worth it.
