We spent three nights at this great property with our family including children and our dog. It is a very beautifully presented family home in a pretty village as you can see from the pictures (Check Sykes cottages website for pics). It is very homely, spacious and has everything you should need in a self catering cottage, the beds were extremely comfortable and we all slept well...even the dog was provided with a great comfortable bed and a mat to put his food trays on in a great large utility room leading out to a lovely enclosed garden area with seating and parasol. The village has a lovely pond with benches where you can sit and see ducks and people fishing, also a farm next door where you can see cows, horses and chickens. The pub over the road is a typical village pub and serves food on Wednesday thought to Friday which looks like good classic pub food from what I saw. We drove to various nearby villages/towns all lovely and then went to the coast then a great place called high lodge which had a great forest for bike riding plus go ape which the kids loved! Would recommend this lovely place to stay Thank You and would love to return one day
