Excellent child and pet friendly house
Stayed over New Year as three families of 4. Sleeping accommodation and bathrooms were clean and spacious. Good, large kitchen would benefit from a second cooker and/or range, although this was not a major issue. Living areas were fairly small for the size of the house, but only mattered when all congregated together. Kids spent most of their time in other areas of the house. Beautiful and extensive garden, not fully secured for children or dogs. Would love to see this in the summer months. Fairly isolated position and Satnav postcode is a mile from actual location, car definitely needed. Easy key collection, no contact with the landlord during stay. Chocolates left as welcome gift. One fridge broken and a dodge chair were main maintenance issues. Overall a fabulous stay in a lovely location.

The property was very secluded which we loved. The House had plenty of space for 6 adults, 4 children and our little Yorkie. Absolutely loved the kitchen and the sunsets through the kitchen windows were just breathtaking. Thank you for a fantastic holiday.

An Amazing House!! An incredible stay!
I am utterly perplexed at some of the poor reviews!! The house is an outstanding place to stay and brilliantly situated for what has been a memorable and enjoyable holiday! The Top House is totally equipped for every need and the owner clearly cares for her customers. Beautifully clean and spacious rooms a delightful kitchen which is a great space for the family. Lovely warm and cosy lounge with a great log burner with wood provided by the owner. The outdoor space is superb and the children and our dog had great fun in the garden. A washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher provided and beds are so comfy! We would love to come back and we will recommend to anybody.

Room layout both upstairs and downstairs was great for our group. Garden was great for the dog and the children. Muffins on arrival was a nice touch!

We loved the house. It was ideal for us as a family group of 8 adults and 5 children, especially the huge garden and the playroom which kept the children good. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and very well equipped, and we would not hesitate to go back again. It would be lovely to go back in summer.
