An excellent comfortable property in a quiet location with lots of birdlife, and lovely countryside views. Away from the 'madding crowd,' but at the same time close to all necessary amenities and the coast. All fixtures and fittings were of a high quality and in good order, including what is probably the most controllable and versatile woodburner wRead moree've ever used. Hide

Kitchen equipment poor quality . Main gripe is no wi fi and the description said phone signal was good, it was not, had to stand by an upstairs window to get a signal. We would not stay here again until wifi was installed. This was mentioned by several other visitors in the guest book !!
