Great Cottage and lovely location
The location was great for us, nice quiet village with pub, lovely walks from the door. Booked this for a family break was not disappointed, great cottage with beautiful stone features. Very comfy and cosy, the Grandkids loved it, especially the spa batch, brilliant after a good walk. The cottage itself has everything you need supplied, the kitchen was not wanting for anything to prepare meals for the family. The bedrooms were nice and warm and cosy, the beds were very comfortable indeed. Lovely large dining room which seats up to 8 people, and would still not feel cramped, lovely table by the way. Nice to have off road parking as well, not always the case with village properties. Will definitely be re-booking, thanks Nick for a great stay.

A lovely spacious, family friendly cottage in a beautiful quiet village. The cottage was brilliantly equipped and communication from the owner was excellent prior to departure. What a beautiful part of the country, would love to return!
