Stayed in the Can Brow this week with my husband and our doggie, what a wonderful little cosy cottage. Rained a lot but didn't stop us doing anything i.e pub & walks etc. One bedroomed which is big enough for a couple and a dog. Very pleased with our stay.

A lovely relaxed area, warm cosy cottage and swimming pool.
