This village, or is it a hamlet? is beautiful place and quintessentially English. We arrived at night in the dark but it was no trouble as the instructions we had been provided with were spot on! we soon got settled in the cottage, immediately feeling at home. We had brought food for a late supper and we had that in front of the gorgeous fire while we chatted and caught up (I visited with my 2 daughters as little escape :-)
The following morning it was raining but again, that was no problem we had some breakfast and really chilled and relaxed, I also need to say that the beds were so comfortable we had a great sleep too. we decided to brave the rain and go for a walk, we didn't find Dawn French's puddle but we had a lovely walk and called in the pub on the way back for hot chocolates.
We also had Sunday lunch at the pub the following day. I can honestly say we had an amazing time here, just what we needed, the cottage is truly lovely and on a practical note; well equipped, clean and cosy.
The owner advised me to bring everything I needed as there are no shops nearby, which was another thing I liked about it. -Fabulous!
We had the most fantastic week at your cottage - it is just so cute and well cared for with every detail having been thought of. We have stayed in lots of holiday cottages and this really is a home from home experience.
While it is cosy its what we expected given its 400 year old character cottage. The wooden beams, log burner and low ceilings just ooze charm and history! We couldnt help wondering who must have lived there over the years!
Being a bit of a film & TV fan and having enjoyed The Vicar of Dibley, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Goodnight Mr Tom and many other films it was just brilliant to stay in such familiar places.
The Bull & Butcher is also to be highly recommended, a truly quintessential English village pub in a chocolate box village!
We will be back soon hopefully :)
Ideal location in a lovely village. Amenities are average. The interior of the cottage is very tired and dirty. It needs a complete renovation.
