The gite is beautifully furnished and very comfortable, the hosts Kirstie and Russell have made sure you have everything you need for your break. There is a lovely private seating area outside with dining area, hot tub and patio which looks out onto the orchard and fields. Wonderful place to stay in a great location for visiting local vineyards and historical towns and villages.

We enjoyed a wonderful short break at Rusty Shears. Not only are the interior fixtures and fittings superb quality and beautiful, they’re comfortable too! We slept brilliantly. The cottage was snug and warm with a lovely wood burning stove that kept the place comfortable all night despite a heavy frost outside. The location is really quiet with lots of beautiful countryside, vineyards and pretty villages all around. And the hosts were very warm and welcoming.

What a hidden gem with wonderful hosts. The gite is in a wonderful and private setting, the standard of finish is exceptionally good and tasteful. Well equipped and comfortable. The private terrace is large, tastefully arranged and is an ideal and attractive spot for both outside dining, relaxing and enjoying your croissant and coffee in the morning!
