  • Pippa and Carl are perfect hosts. Their accommodation is extremely comfortable and quiet. We would certainly choose to stay here again if our travel plans take us anywhere near. Highly recommended.

  • What a fabulous find! We received a very warm welcome from the lovely family who rent out The Little Red House. The space was absolutely perfect for our short stay in the area and had everything we needed. It had a very homely feel, yet the beautiful decor made it feel like a real treat. Our children loved waking up in the morning and looking out to spot the horses having their breakfast. We will definitely be staying here again.
