We particularly liked watching the garden wildlife from the conservatory at West Winds, the cottage is in lovely location.
Mr Harris

Very comfortable with everything needed, even if stuck in on wet days we were able to relax and enjoy the atmosphere. The owners have thought of everything needed to make this cottage perfect.
Mr Irving

We liked the conservatory overlooking the large garden. The wildlife was a joy to watch; for the first time in sixty years I saw a red squirrel eating in the garden, what a big highlight . The dog had the time of his life; I think he thought it was a park.
Mr Hanglin

A lovely, peaceful cottage with a beautiful garden. There were all the amenities you could need, as well as lovely views and a very cosy front room. The cottage was a good base for exploring area. The pond and stream at bottom of the garden were great additional features. There was also plenty of wildlife. A great short break.
Mr Bouchard

It is a really comfortable cosy cottage with everything we needed and more. The scenery from every window is breathtaking. We will definitely be going there again.
