'Tucked just off the high street, this compact cottage is surprisingly stylish with contemporary colours and old beams, great books and a cosy feel,' says Alastair. 'Bedrooms large enough to lounge in are delightful. Susie and Adam (who cooks) are natural and charming. Young, romantic couples will be in heaven here; uncork the wine, light the fire and turn up the music.'
