Great cottage with excellent standards all round, a great location for nearby attractions, and a charming and friendly village. We particularly liked the large rooms and the well designed, planted and maintained garden. Period features and history of the cottage were added distinctions.

The cottage is set in a lovely quiet village which we found very friendly. We now take all our holidays in cottages and Monks Cottage has been one of the very best. It was nice to be met at the property so we could ask a few questions about walks in the area etc.

We loved this charming cottage/home. It has been lovingly remodelled to retain all the historical authenticity yet add the updates that make it so comfortable and efficient. Loved the location, so close to everything yet nestled in a quiet small village.
