Mr Milner

This is a beautiful property to stay in with outstanding views over the Pennines. The property was very comfortable throughout with every detail thought of by the owners; I would have no hesitation in highly recommending this to anyone looking for a peaceful retreat, in an idyllic part of Great Britain, with some lovely walks literally on the doorstep.
Mr Wood

The nicest cottage we have ever stayed in and the owners were wonderful.
Mr Dean

Liked the very pleasant interior with comfortable furniture and quality fittings. All the appliances worked well and the instructions were in good order and clearly available if required. There were lovely views and it was a peaceful setting. Without doubt this was the best cottage we have stayed in, with caring thoughtful owners who were only too ready to make sure we enjoyed our stay. We hope to return.
Mrs Easton

The cottage was perfect! Furniture was comfortable and the cottage was warm with an efficient heating system. All in all this was a fantastic experience, the owners are to be congratulated on achieving the perfect 'home from home'. We would thoroughly recommend this property.
