Here is a comment  from our guestbook regarding utilising the 'Little House'. :

"For anyone thinking of coming with friends or grandparents, family etc. the 'little house' works really well as a 'refuge' *In-laws stayed there and had their own space- worked a treat "


The outside space is great for just relaxing or alfresco dining.


View down to the river.

There are a couple of bicycles at the house.

Your hosts, Jim and Pauline live in the village and will be on hand for any additional help or assistance you may need.
