Great location and friendly people in general.
Mr Ackerman,

,Excellent cottage and location, you can spend a week exploring the local area without needing to use the car. Neighbours are friendly and helpful. Great for Rupert bear fans, with original artefacts on display. Overall an excellent place to stay and well up to the standard we expect with Sykes.

,A great cottage with amazing views. Light and well-resolved accommodation, quiet cosy and yet practical. It was very convenient for the village. Very interesting background history as the place where "Rupert" stories were written.
