Lovely little village tea shop with a great restaurants and a couple of pubs.Natalie from Liverpool - 25th April 2017
A beautifully maintained, modern and well presented cottage. Gwyn and Jane were very friendly owners who made us feel right at home. The property was comfortable, always warm after we came home (as we did see a fair bit of rain). The views whilst eating breakfast through the dining window were stunning. The scenery has been stunning - we will certainly be back. Thank you.Chris & Tracy Long - 20th March 2017
