The Cottage was lovely and tranquil and in a great position. The view from the cottage garden was amazing. We were made to feel welcome and it really was a home from home. To cap it all the weather was fantastic.
Mrs Mason

Liked the cosy, warm feel of the cottage. The fully equipped kitchen that made it easy to prepare family dinners. A delightful view greeted me as I opened the curtains each morning and I liked the proximity of some of the UK's most enchanting natural features.

I had expected so much more from this cottage. When we arrived the cottage had been empty for a few days and felt very cold. I think it would have been nice if the heating had been on for a while to heat it through. It wasn't while the next day that it warmed through. The cottage does not have a freezer, so if like us, take food for the week ( no shops in village) you have a problem. We were lucky that some other rooms were empty and the owner let us use the freezer boxes at the top of the other fridges. The Cottage is very dog friendly. It has fabulous views from the back and a very large field that the dogs can run about. I had no complaints about that at all. The furniture in the lounge is past it and needs an immediate replacement. When sat on by the end of the evening you are 6 inches off the floor and have great difficulty getting back out of it. The kitchen has all you need and pots and cutlery are fine. Oven clean etc so it was very useable. Upstairs the bedrooms are adequate. Very clean and quite comfy. Not big, but you only sleep in them. The bathroom has a shower which again needs an immediate replacement. I have never known a shower to be still in any bathroom that you are expected to shower in. I would like the owner to have a shower there and say that they find it acceptable for guests. The cottage is very dark inside and the lighting very dim. The furniture is not helping the overall look of the property. The darkness hides a small lip between the kitchen and living area floor, unfortunately my husband stubbed his toes on it and broke one of his toes. Overall it is not the best property I have stayed in and wouldn't go back. I also think that there are much better area's. There is not even a shop. Nothing really of any interest here and having driven around saw far better places to stay where you don't have to drive to to start your walk. I have been very honest with this review and feel I can't recommend it

A comfortable cottage ideally situated for walking and sightseeing. Views from the lounge are excellent. The owners are very friendly and helpful. All in all the cottage was not a disappointment, certainly recommend it to friends and family.
Mr Brewer

The location was fantastic. The cottage itself was wonderful and the owner was friendly and helpful.
