This is my second stay at Barber’s Cottage and I’m planning a third. Lovely cozy cottage in a perfect location. Great for a romantic break or getting away from it all for studying or writing. Highly recommended.

The property was very clean and comfortable. It's in a great location, a couple of mins walk from several local pubs, restaurants and the high street. I'd highly recommend to anyone looking to stay in the area
