A great cottage and perfect size for two and a dog. Lots to see and do in walking distance and further afield.

miss M C,

Lovely quirky cottage in great old town location

Mrs C,

It was lovely to be staying in a piece of history. Probably the quaintest place I have ever stayed in. We appreciated finding a cottage to stay in where we could bring our two dogs.
