Recent stay
This cottage was clean well presented and well equipped! However it is in a quiet village with no amenities! It was on the dog friendly site and in my opinion the garden was not dog friendly walls surround with large drops to enable the dogs to easily jump off! I do not recommend this property fir large dogs and small dogs could get under the gates. It is situated right on the road so caution needs to be taken! The roads to it a very narrow and windy !

New Years fun and frolics
We booked this cottage from 30th Dec-2nd Jan Mel & her husband, me, my husband and 2 dogs. The cottage looked lovely on arrival but inside was even lovelier. Beautifully decorated, very well appointed with everything you could need was thought of, fab log burner and underfloor heating so was very warm and cosy. All 3 of the bedrooms are a really good size though we only used the 2 with en-suite bathrooms. If you have children or even as adults there were plenty of games for those rainy days and a choice of dvd's too (not that we used any of them). You can literally see the sign for the pub from the front door which we fully made use of ....... well it was new year after all!!! The pub is very friendly and does some nice food aswell and we also found the locals on New Years Eve to be very welcoming and friendly. Would have no hesitation in rebooking this again but may try a different season next time for a change. I would say if you have a small dog the five bar gate may not be sufficient but that's a very trivial point in the general scheme of the whole property.
