What a lucky find! Lovely, clean cottage with everything that you need. Set in beautiful countryside. Hot tub for chilling (and star gazing). Right next to a working sheep farm, which the kids loved. The owners Sarah and Pete were only too happy to show us around and let the kids feed the lambs. Lovely people, fantastic hospitality! Some nearby pubs with good food and drink. All in all, perfect for a long weekend of R+R and family time. Thankyou

This place is a proper gem!!!! Every little detail has been thought about to the highest standard. We love our weekends away and this is up there with the best we?ve been too and without a doubt we will be back. Sarah, Pete and of course Owen are the most amazing hosts and people who have genuinely turned this into something special?thank you all so so much and it goes without say we will definitely be returning! Xx

Incredible Cottage, Beautiful Setting - The Perfect Holiday
This was our second visit to the cottage after staying last year. Last time we visited, we knew after staying there that it wouldn't be the only time! The cottage is beautiful and impressively presented. The plot in which it stands is lovely; so peaceful and relaxing. The option of the hot tub this year was a lovely addition! We were lucky to have such beautiful weather too so it was perfect (although the one evening it did rain, the hot tub was still in use!). Sarah and Pete are the most wonderful hosts; nothing is ever too much for them and they go out of their way to make sure you're as happy and comfortable as possible. One of the most beautiful breaks we've had - we'll definitely be returning in the future.

Perfect get away
We came to stay for 3 nights, it was amazing everything we hoped for and more.The property has been renovated to the highest standard and was well equipped. Thank you to Sarah and Peter for making us feel so welcome . Hope to come back again. If you're thinking of booking please do you won?t be disappointed.

A perfect stay
We have had a beautiful few days spent in the Old Cart House. The cottage is utterly stunning, both inside and out. Driving up to it was amazing; seeing the beautiful spot in which it stands. We have been very lucky to have had gorgeous weather too so we have had the benefit of both the beautiful and peaceful outdoors, as well as the cosy, lovely inside. Everything about our stay has been exceptional and it has been a beautiful setting to spend some time as a family. There is lots of helpful information in the cottage of local facilities (we took full advantage of some such as the wifi and local take away details) The cottage is spotless and it is clear that a lot of loving attention is given to every detail. The photo album of the progress is also a lovely touch. I loved looking through and seeing the transformation. Sarah and Pete have done an incredible job and are amazing hosts - so kind and friendly, nothing is too much trouble for them. We can't wait to come back again next year, our booking is already made!!!
