Remote location which could suit some but not all. Steep stairs to the bedroom. Nice powerful shower and good outdoor parking. Nice roomy cottage with a good garden area. Very dog friendly.

The property owners were very nice and friendly. Could not recommend enough. Hide

Very well placed for sightseeing by car and comfortable, homely barn conversion. The steps to and from the mezzanine bedroom area and to/from the garden may be a problem for some.

Lovely location but maybe a bit remote if dining out. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful
