Great holiday home for a large party, lots of space, a great kitchen and the hot tub a great success. The d?cor was lovely as were the bedrooms.

We could not have asked for a better cottage, it was perfect!
Mr Soule

Stunning property in an idyllic location. The house is immaculately presented throughout and all the bedrooms are equally beautiful which is very important when you are in a large group as nobody wants to get the sub standard room!! The house is within easy walking distance to pubs and village shop and the scenery is breath taking.
Mrs Tai

What a lovely house! Would highly recommend. Stayed here as with 9 others. Bedrooms are spacious. Sitting room is very cozy. Dining room and kitchen are fab and not to mention the hot tub outside amongst the beautiful view. The house was very clean and tidy. House is well equipped and some things are very thoughtful. Thank you for a great stay. Would definitely stay here again.

This house is in one of the most beautiful places in the world and we were excited to spend Christmas there. Unfortunately the beauty of the location - and the actual house - were not matched by either the maintenance of the property or, more importantly, the level of hospitality offered by the owner. There were numerous problems, including a hot tub full of old smelly water from the previous guests, mouse droppings and mould in the bathroom and the Aga not working properly (we had to call out the engineer to repair it), broken light fittings, damp firewood... But the owner (hundreds of miles away in London) failed spectacularly to remedy any problems or even to apologise for them. In fact, when we complained at the end of our stay she accused us of having broken things but quickly had to retract as she had no grounds for the accusation. We've had family Christmas in other big houses for the best part of a decade and we've never had this kind of basic lack of hospitality and grace. A real shame that such a lovely house is being run in this way.
