Beautiful cottage, stunning location
This cottage really is beautiful. The kitchen is gorgeous, on the small side and very little worktop space but just enough for a weeks holiday of only cooking breakfasts. The living room is cosy and has a larder cupboard which is useful with the minimal kitchen cupboards. Very large master bedroom with a comfy bed. The children's bedroom is small but just enough room for 2 single beds. Bathroom is very small and doesn't have a shower which was a bit of a pain and wasn't advertised. Also do Be aware that you have to provide your own bedding, again this was a bit of a pain but we were aware of this beforehand. Location is perfect, tonnes of walks from the doorstep and a pub a 10 minute walk down the road. Lots of places to visit within a 30 minute drive. Only reason I'm marking this cottage down 1 star is because it wasn't the cleanest, there was ALOT of dog hair everywhere upstairs, including all over the beds. We have a dog and always Hoover cottages before we leave but the upstairs didn't look like it had been hoovered for quite a while. Shame as otherwise the cottage would have been perfect.

Perfect place to relax and unwind
Quaint little cottage with surprisingly spacious sitting room, kitchen dinner and not to mention the master bedroom with a four postal bed! Ample heating in all rooms by the electric storage heaters. The open fire enhanced coziness and ambiance of the cottage. Well equipped kitchen with quality crockery and cutlery. As we are not the families who eat out often, we enjoyed cooking in the kitchen. Even though the garden is a secured dog friendly garden, but did not feel able to leave the dog alone there as the garden is not attached to the cottage. This is only a minor inconvenience. No WIFI so we talked and enjoyed the in-house board games. Beautiful surroundings. We had a lovely week there. Will definitely will recommend to friends and families. Thank you.

Bad experience
When we arrived the property looked very untidy weeds all round the front door and the paint work needed updating.The furniture( settee) in lounge very uncomfortable felt as if you were sitting on the floor and the floor surface from kitchen to lounge not finished kept tripping over it.Would not recommend this place to any of my friends poor experience.

Worth a stay
Lovely cosy cottage in a beautiful setting. Well equipped kitchen. Warned to take bedding, which is slightly inconvenient, king sized duvet as informed would have been nice though.

Lovely cottage
Lovely cottage, that backs onto the moor, with all you need for a secluded holiday. No wifi so the kids actually had to communicate with us which was lovely! Lots of lovely local walks - be prepared for strong, unrelenting wind if your venture up onto the moor! Booking was easy and landlord's communication was great. Only minor frustration was that the garden wasn't linked to the house so we we had to accompany the dog when he wanted to go out.
