Reviewed March 24, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Leaving the little village of Sidbury on our way to this cottage was an experience in itself. Coming from Ontario, Canada, the tight narrow windy one-track roads were exciting not knowing hat you might meet round the next bend. The cottage was easy to find however using the directions provided. Entering the cottage, a converted barn. we were impressed with the quality of the bedrooms each with its ensuite bathroom. We loved the king-sized bed! Going upstairs, the kitchen / dining room was excellent with everything we would ever need for our stay.The furniture was particularly comfortable.
The cottage was also well stocked with games, books and dvd's as well as literature/brochures etc about things to do in the surrounding area. There are footpaths and bridlepaths all around. But be warned if you go down you have to come back up (hills).
Good base for visiting the wonderful little towns and fishing villages. If you are from Canada or the States, driving will be a challenge...
