I booked this cottage for a somewhere to stay the night before my wedding and for a few days away after. I love how they have managed to keep that quirky medieval charm yet put in all the luxury of the modern times. I had a few people come to visit and each person loved it! Set in beautiful surroundings with everything you need on its doorstep. The stairs are steep to get up to the property but if I can get up and down in a wedding dress anyone else should find them a doddle! Beamed ceilings, real fire, country walks and pubs in the village what more do people need :) Plus the priest is a great character with many stories to tell if your interested.

Porter's Lodge
Exceeded my expectations. I booked online from a review. I was a little scared. We came from Canada and I had dealt with the whole process on line. From the pictures and reviews I made a leap of faith. It was quirky and warm and welcoming. We were provided with a bit of history from Father Phillip, the caretaker of keys. It was convenient to the areas that we were interested in. A bit of drive to find an evening meal, about 10 minutes away. The fish and chip take out just down the street was very tasty. It was fully equipped with everything we needed and the appliances were easy to use. Very enjoyable.
