Cottage with the 'wow' factor
Stone Mouse Cottage is a beautifully furnished, well equipped, spacious, spotlessly clean property and we loved it. It isn't easy to find adjectives which have not been used already to describe the cottage - so I will be boring and say it is just as 'special' as other reviewers have said. Nothing can be faulted - the beds are so comfortable, the bedding is luxurious, the towels are white and fluffy and the selection of toiletries is a very nice touch. The lounge has large settees, a fabulous stone fireplace and a great kitchen/dining area with everything you could need. The large sliding glass doors opening onto a pretty decked and garden area make the most of the lovely views. The owners are so helpful and go that extra mile to ensure that everything is just right to give the guests a perfect holiday experience. A welcome pack of home-made scones (with cream and jam) and a bottle of wine were extremely well received and the fresh flowers were lovely. Would we go back again - you bet! We just loved the location, remote, quiet and beautiful.

Beautiful accommodation in a beautiful location.
Mrs Burton

We loved it all, it was a real home from home, the whole property inside and out was excellent. We would have no hesitation in returning or recommending it to our family & friends. It was also very dog friendly, but equally ideal for dog free visitors.
Mr Lacey

The welcome was superb, and the view from the main lounge windows was great; really enabled us to relax and enjoy the peace, calm and wildlife. We didn't realise what a superb base this makes for a holiday either in the Forest of Bowland or the Yorkshire Dales, both of which are just short journeys away. The layout of the cottage was ideal for our needs.
Mr Holleran

This was the most beautiful cottage to come and spend the week in. Everything was very clean, comfortable and attractive and the owners had thought of everything you might need on a week away and left it to hand (including a fantastic set of notes on what and where to do things in the area). It was more than suitable for our dog and baby, which is great as properties often suit one or another. The views and peace in the area were also wonderful!
