    “We really enjoyed our stay at Rookwood Cottage and the the cream tea on arrival was appreciated, overall the cottage was clean and well presented with some lovley touches but there were no curtains or blinds up in one of the bedrooms which we would have preferred to sleep in and the outside garden was in need of some attention and a good weeding as well as cutting back around the front door.”

    The Cottage is only a short walk from the local pub and the villagers were welcoming and friendly but the pub did have a habit of running out of food so do go prepared, we really enjoyed our stay with some lovley places to visit in the area.
