The accommodation was perfect for our group, with plenty of seating areas and a good sized kitchen table to chat and eat at. The house was well equipped and the wifi was good. The owner was helpful.
Miss Russell

This is a lovely, clean, spacious cottage. The garden was lovely safe & enclosed. The owner was easily contactable. We had a great stay despite the weather being unkind earlier in the week. We would highly recommend this cottage and would like to come back again next year.
Mrs Goodman

The cottage was warm, welcoming and you felt right at home immediately. It was perfect for all our family needs. We had a lovely stay and could not fault anything. We were so pleased with the choice of this cottage, it was also perfect for the places we wanted to visit. A special family weekend enhanced by the cottage, many thanks.
Mrs Whalley

Blind Man's Gate was fabulous. Everything you needed was there.
Miss Stewart

A very nice cottage, the photos do not really do it justice. The lounges were bigger than expected with comfy sofas. There was a lovely big kitchen table! We were a group of 6, a toddler and dogs and we all enjoyed our stay. The games room was a good idea, the bedrooms were all a good size and there was a lovely pub just across the road. We would go back.
