A very comfortable cottage in a delightful location. The only negative we had (which nothing could be done about) were the steep stairs, but it didn't spoil our holiday. Would highly recommend this property.

This is such a lovely cottage we are travelling without children but anyone bringing them along they will be thrilled with the steam train passing the end of the garden for sure . The cottage is very well equipped you need not bring anything with you and it's location is perfect too. Lots of walks from the door and great places to eat close by too.
