Our group of six adults (family & friends) spent a lovely few days in this delightful cottage. We have stayed in several properties in the area in the past and this was definitely the best.

Lovely cottage in a perfect location for shops, pubs and restaurants. Countryside walks are also a stones-throw away. The only issue is the busy on street parking so it can be tricky unloading on arrival, but spaces do appear later in the day. This didnt spoil our holiday and would definitely recommend Nepenthe.
