"A very pleasant apartment which was formerly the home of a member of our host's family, hence the warm ambience. The bedroom is large, the bed comfortable and the location on The Green ensures peaceful surroundings. The small kitchen works surprisingly well, with lots of extra shelving and cupboards in the adjacent lobby. The living/dining room has everything for a pleasant evening indoors and the central heating is controlled from within the apartment. Sophie (the owner) and husband Mike are on hand if needed and provide a generous welcome pack on arrival. We have no hesitation in recommending this apartment and would definitely return."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 12 January 2017. 5 of 5 stars. 2017-01-12
"Very comfortable warm apartment in a beautiful Georgian house. Owner very nice. Cosy log burner, very comfy bed, clean kitchen with everything you need for a few days or weeks. We had three days at the end of September and it was a pleasure to arrive back to the apartment each day. We took our little cocker spaniel. There is a fenced off area witch is safe for a dog and a nice large entrance where you can wipe the dog and take off your wellies and shoes. Would definitely go back. Also pub at the end of the road and town within walking distance."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 07 December 2016 2016-12-07
