A lovely, comfortable cottage for a long weekend or mid-week break. We loved the peaceful location and views of the countryside. The property was warm and cosy and the television, WiFi and comfortable sofa were all well used by us as the weather was not too good in the evenings. Safe parking was an added bonus.

We were very lucky to book Elm Cottage so last minute (on the day) and everything was all ready for us. Entry to the property well explained and easy. Nice spacious and clean studio cottage. Decent and well kitted out kitchen and more than enough space for two people. Log burner a nice touch (if a little on the large size). Our stay was in October Read morebut can imagine it is nice to make use of the back garden in summer. Hide

The cottage was welcoming and cosy. Everything we needed included. Milk, biscuits and tea/coffee sachets a nice touch. Bed comfortable and clean.
