Lovely cottage, convenient for walks to waterfalls
Very well equipped cottage. Clean and comfortable. Ideal for a long weekend. There are several walks to beautiful waterfalls and the river right from the doorstep. 2 pubs just down the road, 5-10 mins walk. We had very good meals at the White Horse. No wi-fi, so this is a real escape from technology! Great place to chill and relax.
