Our home

A beautifully cosy & traditionally furnished country cottage with open fires and lovely private gardens.
The kitchen/diner is well equipped & has a large log burning stove. French doors lead onto a large private patio area complete with bbq and quality garden furniture. Just relax in the garden read and enjoy the peace and tranquility.
Sorry we can't stop the birds singing nor would we want to.
