Great stay in a wonderful old cottage. The village of Sheepwash has a local village shop / post office, pub, tea room and churches with a good dog walking route. In short everything you need for a perfect holiday.

We spent a very pleasant stay in this cottage, very well arranged while preserving the soul of this old residence. I also appreciated Sally's availability, her kindness, and her very good eggs. Nice discovery Catherine
