Relaxing by the wood-burner in the living room was great, the perfect place to be on a snowy January weekend!

Lovely cottage which offered much more than we were expecting! The facilities were fantastic and the log fire was lovely! The owners were very welcoming and helpful. We will definitely recommend this to friends and will be sure to return!

This is a lovely cottage furnished to a very high standard. The furnishings really complement the style of the cottage. We were welcomed by a lovely lit Christmas tree and carols playing on the radio.

Beautiful sitting room and bedrooms. Kitchen and bathroom were a pleasure to be in. Property has real character. Beautiful log burner is the finishing touch. Charming hosts set up Christmas tree and put fresh milk in fridge - cannot recommend this cottage enough. Lovely place - was very sad to leave. Arrived tired and in need of a break, left relaxed and energized.
