“Perfect cottage”
Reviewed 29 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We have just spent a lovely winter break at this cottage. It was so warm and inviting and very well equipped. The beds are huge and very comfortable. The village itself is charming and, although the Hotel was closed for the winter, the Grey's Inn was baby and dog friendly and provided a very nice evening meal. In addition, there is a local shop for basic food shopping. The cottage owners were kind and helpful and quickly replaced a missing kitchen item.
