Handels Muse cottage was recommended to us by friends who had visited last year and it certainly didn't disappoint. To be greeted with homemade scones and jam with clotted cream and butter was heaven after a long drive was heaven. The cottage, furnishings and facilities were superb and the cleanliness was second to none. Jan, Glyn and Lydia were charming hosts and we have Jan to thank for all her chats on the history of Oldfields Farm and surrounding area. Also the abundance of information from her of where to visit. Considering the weather was rather cold for the time of year the cottage was beautifully warm and cosy. It was a wonderful week.
