    Our cottages are professionally managed by our partners and payments are taken by them, but rest assured, by booking via Snaptrip you'll pay the lowest possible price for your trip.

    We never charge you more than you would pay booking directly on the partner's site and if you become a Snaptrip member you can save even more. If you find a property priced lower anywhere else on the internet (we’d be amazed if you do), simply email us at marketing@snaptrip.com and we'll refund you the difference.

    "We had a great 3 days here, suited us especially as we have a large dog and there are some wonderful walks straight from the cottage. Fabulous village, very friendly locals and we enjoyed coffees at the local shop/ tearoom.Thank you Pauline"

    "S19648 was an excellent holiday base. Its comfy and well stocked, beautifully clean and in a very pretty village. It also has a completely enclosed garden, so my little dog could not escape.Unfortunately, for me, the holiday was not a great success -due to the 3 storms which hit the south and west in the week I was there. Cold, wet and windy every day does not make for a good time!"

    "Accommodation is good in a lovely village. I personally found the location difficult, too many very narrow lanes."
