Wonderful historic property

  • 5 of 5

We spent a couple of nights here and found the property to be charming. Very old and sympathetically restored to a high standard.

Simon, the property owner was very helpful and allowed us to keep our bikes in the property. The property location is just about perfect. Literally 3 steps from a very good baker and a few more to a local shop, restaurants and bars. Easy parking (free) about 50m away.

Beautiful place to stay, both the house and its location. Great value for money. Be back next year!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to stay! The open fireplace with plenty of firewood included was our favourite part! Comfortable beds and plenty of towels supplied. The house was nice clean and we found everything we needed for cooking etc. There were plenty of places nearby to eat and drink also. Overall we absolutely loved the house and really enjoyed our stay. We’re looking forward to our next visit!
