Mrs Newton

We had a really enjoyable and comfortable stay at Millstone Cottage during a week of dry October weather and glorious Autumn colours. In a peaceful village setting with a good local pub.
Mr Hunter

The cottage was warm and comfortable and we were able to feel relaxed. The owners couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming. Everything was excellent. We loved the pretty village with its traditional village green, church, pub and mansion. Everyone was so friendly.

We had a great holiday at this lovely cottage. The village was very central for visiting lots of local attractions, with a good playground and pub. The owners were very friendly and helpful and we all loved meeting the horses xx
