A lovely little cottage set in the middle of the countryside. It's a 15 minute walk along narrow unlit roads to the nearest shop and pub but short cuts are available across the fields when they dry out a bit. I wouldn't describe it as dog friendly as there is no enclosed area to let them out and nowhere to wash their muddy feet but dogs are allowedRead more and our two had a great time. Overall I lovely little place for a summer visit or for a couple with no dogs who are happy to drive about. Hide
