Absolutely gorgeous little cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights and didn’t want to leave. We will definitely be staying again. Bev was more than helpful.

Highly recommended
This is a beautifully renovated cottage in an idyllic setting. There is a lovely entrance hall with a gorgeous shower/w.c. An open plan lounge with log burning fire, fully equipped kitchen and dining area. Upstairs to a gorgeous bedroom with en suite shower/w.c. The garden has a lovely patio overlooking the river with wide countryside views. Bev, the owner, is charming and was there to greet us even though we arrived an hour early. It is a 5 mins walk to a very nice village pub which only opens Thu - Sun, although I believe the pub at the far end of the village may open from 6pm throughout the week although I did not visit there.
