Reviews"The only thing to match the beauty of this house is the wonderful host, Toushy. The cottage is up a narrow lane in a charming little village. A short 5 minute stroll takes you to the village pub which although a bit noisy is good for an informal meal. Pepper Cottage is a gorgeous home with heaps of character but not lacking in any of the 5 star amenities that you would expect in much grander accommodation. Looking out the window of the main bedroom shows you a vista straight from a romantic historical novel. You could imagine that you are living in the 18th century." Jen, Australia
- Bio : Your hosts at Pepper Cottage are Mrs Catherine Squires, known to everyone as Toushy, and her dog, Raffi, her rescued Yorkshire Terrier. Both of them love visitors and look forward to meeting you with a welcome cup of tea, sandwiches and cakes in the garden, in Summer or by the fire, in Winter. Raffi is, however, somewhat afraid of other dogs and is the reason why other pets cannot, generally, be accommodated here. However, it is worth having a chat about it beforehand.
