Fantastic cottage, refurbished to a high standard, equipped with everything you need. Garden is great and secure for any type of dog, plenty of garden furniture, just need to weather to get the benefit. 2 pubs in the village, we only used the Black Bull which was great. Takeaway also good, COOP at the garage 5 mins walk has most things you'd need. Read moreWalks from the doorstep. Hide
