A good supply of pubs, bistros, tearooms, gorgeous gift shop, paper and post shop, excellent deli-village store, pretty church, golf course, small play park with family barbecue area and a smart art gallery completes the village scene. We even have a Franciscan Friary in the village!

The three spacious reception rooms are interconnected with French doors to give one big living space or three individual rooms, two of which have wood burning stoves as well as central heating. 32" TVs and WiFi.

Upstairs, there is a separate family bathroom and four of the five bedrooms are en suite. Room lay outs are: family en suite - 1 double and 2 single beds, 1 double bedroom - not en suite. A double en suite, a king size bedroom adjoining twin bedroom with Jack and Jill en suite.
