The room is tastefully decorated with lots of storage! The property is right in the centre of the village very easy to find and a few pubs right on your doorstep!

Idyllic mini break at Orchard Cottage.
5 stars 5

'We stayed at Orchard Cottage for three nights in October. Jean and David made us feel very welcome on arrival and throughout our stay. Our room was spacious, very comfortable and spotlessly clean and tidy. There was a plentiful supply of hot water for showers and baths in the large ensuite bathroom. An excellent choice for breakfast and plenty to fuel you up for a day’s walking. An added bonus is the excellent parking facilities. We always like to arrive at our B & B park the car and the next time it moves is when we start our return journey home. Two lovely days walking straight from the front door, the weather was glorious at times we couldn’t believe it was October it felt more like June! We had such a relaxing stay at Orchard Cottage - time just seemed to go in a blink of an eye.'
