Lovely comfortable cottage with good facilities.
Very clean and well prepared. Beautiful tranquil garden, enclosed so dogs were safe.
Lovely Welcome Hamper.
We have visited the area before so knew this was a good location for us (dog walks, pubs etc.) Lovely to see the addition of the great cafe at the Community Shop.
We hope to be back.

This is a lovely cottage that matches the description exactly. We had a dog with us and it was good for her too. The garden is indeed fully enclosed and we were able to let her have the freedom she needed. The house had plenty of space but character too. The village is a delight with plenty of safe walks both in and around the village. Gems like this are hard to find. Rural Retreats never let me down. Mrs H, Shropshire
