We had a fantastic stay at Shady Brook, it was a lovely little cottage with everything we needed. The fire, spa and comfortable space all resulted in us having a beautiful break from the world. Shady Brook is an easy 10min walk to two different pubs for meals, whilst the well equipped kitchen made cooking for ourselves also a breeze.
I would recommend people looking at a quiet stay to book Shady Brook.
My only feedback was that our two bedroom spa cottage was better for those wanting quiet as the two smaller one bedroom cottages had campers across the river from them, that at times where nosiey.
