Great base to explore the local area. Views across and down the valley are enticing. Cottage is lovely to come back to after a day in the outdoors, or for chilling on a rest day. We really enjoyed our stay!

Lovely lovely cottage. I've stayed in my fair share of dumps but this definitely wasn't one. Lovely views, nice big bedrooms, comfortable beds. We did think the lawn area at the side of our cottage was for our personal use, until I saw the neighbour walk past my living room window a few times... Surrounding fields are quite steep, not good for dodgRead morey knees (like mine!) but good to wear the kids out! Cottage is very much in the middle of nowhere tho, bit of a drive to get anywhere.

Extremely clean property and amazing helpful host. On arrival the tea tray, cake and milk was such a welcome and needed touch. Really well equipped property with lots of kitchen utensils, pots and pans and dishes, washing line, iron, Tea towels, washing up liquid, shower cream, hand soap. Such a change from other places we've stayed. Our only negatRead moreive comment is the road noise was louder than we had expected as the property was close to a main road by the views were amazing all the time. Hide
