An excellent peaceful hideaway in a lovely little village. Cottage has good facilities - all you need for a stress-free self-catering holiday.

Absolutly loved Poppy Cottage and had a fantastic time!Mrs P Hobart - 23rd April 2017
Great place to visit. So much open space and wonderful walks. Good weather was a bonus but even drizzle didn't upset our plans. Good National Trust places to visit.Mrs S J Kirby - 15th May 2016
Poppy cottage is a lovely property, be sure to read the directions before you arrive, it is a little difficult to locate at first being located behind a row of cottages in a shared garden, once there however it is charming, quiet and cosy!Miss Kath Gibson - 18th April 2016
