  • “Fiddlesticks is a lovely well-appointed cottage.”

    The decor is tasteful and the beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped. As mentioned in other reviews, the parking space is a bit too small for most family size cars.

    The decor is tasteful and the beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped. As mentioned in other reviews, the parking space is a bit too small for most family size cars. It is tucked away in a very quiet location but just a short walk from the shops. Whilst it does have WiFi, we found that it was very slow, especially when more than one device was trying to use it. All in all, a lovely cottage in a great location.
