What would be more relaxing than to stay in a beautiful cottage in a quintessential English village? Awake each morning to the sound of birdsong and a babbling brook and after a day of adventure fall asleep beneath a carpet of stars.

Whilst now modernised, this property actually dates back to 1700 and as the name suggests Brookside Cottage has a delightful brook running alongside the garden.
