    Excellent cottage / converted mill. Furnished very tastefully and to a high quality standard. Its situated in a beautiful valley, the extensive and well maintained garden is bordered by a river and forest. We found it to be an extremely comfortable and private place and close to wonderful woodland walks, NT properties and beautiful coastline and coastal villages. An ideal escape and oasis of calm and serenity.
