We have had a fabulous stay at The Longcroft, it was everything we had hoped and more. The location was amazing and it had easy access to the village and walks. The house was decorated to the highest standards and it was cosy and comfortable with spectacular views. Hopefully we will return one day in the future. Such a lovely homely house.
