The owner had made sure the heating was on before we arrive and it was lovely to be greeted with a nice cosy, warm cottage on such a cold wintry day - and the cakes were a nice touch too, thanks. We got stuck with the snow, and the farmer was very happy to dig us out, very friendly and helpful, thank you. All in all, we loved the property, very comfortable and cosy, wonderfully quiet and secluded, perfect for a relaxing get-away weekend. We would happily return to stay again and thoroughly recommend to others.

Quiet and rural. A barn owl on arrival flying over then in front of car was amazing! Enjoyed every bit of it.

Miss Sherratt, Oldham, November 2012

The welcome was warm and friendly, the cottage was cosy, what more could anyone want? I went to that area because there is plenty to see and do and it kept me really busy.
