We seldom leave reviews, but thought it worth leaving this one as we loved our stay. Lovely location in the valley with beautiful views from all the windows. Short drive to a good local pub and the cottage had all the things you need to make the stay relaxing & comfortable. Hosts were helpful and intrusive.
