Granary Cottage


Thank you we had a lovely stay in a beautiful little cottage. We read 'The Diary of a Farmer's Wife 1796-1797' (really fascinating) as well as our own books and explored the local area. Perfect weather and going electricity free we realised we don't miss the mod cons. Hope to be back again some day.
