    A magical location, so beautiful. Mistletoe Cottage was just lovely, if only walls could speak!. Clean ,comfortable, warm and cosy, the open fire place was most enjoyable during the cool weather. A most delightful place, the surrounding countryside was perfect for walks , runs , fresh air ....perfect. Quiet and relaxing. Delicious food at local Pubs, Massive cream tea at Shelleys in the village a short walk away. The cottage had everything we required and more, many weeks could easily be spent enjoying everything this enchanting cottage and stunning location offers.
