I thought I had already written a review - but it seems I didn't. This place is excellent and my daughter is returning here with friends this summer. It was exceptionnally well-equipped and I would recommend it without hesitation.

Additional Rate and Availability Information
An explanation as to why the price you might have expected differs from that we have quoted. Holiday Lettings' front page for our property indicates a minimum daily price; this is generated by Holiday Lettings and is calculated by dividing the weekly rate by seven. We have no control of this figure and it does not reflect our pricing policy correctly which is based on a weekly charge with a discount for shorter stays.
Visitors are welcome to book short breaks and week long visits throughout the year.
A discounted rate can be arranged, should you wish to arrange a longer stay.
Please enquire direct about availability over the Christmas holidays.

This is an farming area, but is very well served with footpaths which can provide many different walks, particularly for dog owners. We are all asked to respect the countryside at all times, with particular regard to local farmers and their livestock and crops.
