We stayed her at Christmas 3 years ago and booked again for this Christmas which shows how much we liked it, again a lovely peaceful time, perfect for walking our dog with the added benefit of an indoor pool as my wife is a keen swimmer.

Charming cottage with superb location in beautiful village. Owners very helpful throughout or stay. Exceptionally well-located for visiting some of the country's best National Trust houses and gardens (worth taking out National Trust membership if staying here). There are also some very pleasant 4-5 mile circular walks straight from the front door.
