4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, room comfort
A cosy retreat
Bed and mattress past their use-by date. TV could only get Netflix. Mobile phone signal none-existent, however the owner (who lives nex door) put an App called Viber on my phone for me - this allowed us to call out but not receive calls. Luckily WhatsApp (there is internet there) allowed contact with friends and family. When we needed to call NHS on 111 the owner lent us the cordless extention to their landline. The owners were very helpful at all times. The bathroom is excellent. The village has two excellent pubs both of which do good home-cooked meals. The pavements are made of stones set on edge that have been worn down over many years of use, but are still uncomfortable for walking unless you have stout shoes on (most locals did appear to wear such shoes) There are several well documented walks in and around the village. Overall we enjoyed our stay.
