Home from Home, in an excellent location for Christmas!
This cottage suited us perfectly for Christmas. Three of us, a room downstairs for my elderly parents and a difficult choice of two wonderful rooms upstairs for me! Very clean and cosy, the owners and caretaker were very helpful and kind, which made our Christmas extra special. Wonderful location, everything you'd want for Christmas on your doorstep: Beautiful countryside on the doorstep to walk off the Christmas dinner. A well stocked little shop with local produce A warm friendly pub, where you could also get a takeaway! A popular hotel, 'up the road', if you didn't want to cook your Christmas dinner! and a Church for midnight mass..., just next door! We'd love to visit again, it was like going back in time with the pretty cottages and quietness, away from the commercial hustle and bustle.
