Brian and Linda are wonderful hosts - thank your for your delicious welcoming cream tea! Allerford is a peaceful place,...

Management response:

Thank you for leaving this lovely review, we are so pleased you enjoyed our Stable Cottage and location and hope to welcome you again soon with another cream tea. Linda & Brian

Allerford is a very much unexplored little village containing much to interest the traveller...
