We had a lovely week at Shepherds Rest. Lovely spacious property, with an enclosed front garden which was great for catching the evening sun when we came back from a day out. Very large master bedroom with a nice comfortable bed. Jenny and Malcolm were friendly and helpful, but not intrusive and left us to enjoy our holiday.

The owners were a delightful couple, very welcoming and warm. However, our first two nights were marred by an unpleasant smell of drains, which cleared by the third night, and the cottage felt a little damp when we first arrived - it was autumn so this might not be a problem at other times. Some equipment needs updating. Our biggest disappointment Read morewas the games room - the pool table was ripped and the cues had no tips.
