    “We had a great week away, cottage very quirky but lots of steep stairs which is not great if you have any slight mobility issues, one double bed was comfy, the other one (at the top of the house) not comfy could do with a firmer mattress, ended up sleeping in twin room bed as this was comfier.”

    Good location for all shops, restaurants and pubs, no large supermarket though so prices very high in the smaller shops.
