    “We really enjoyed this holiday in ...”
    We really enjoyed this holiday in Rookhope it made it even more special with the snow! The house was even larger than we expected from the photos , plenty room for everyone and all of a very good standard . Paul the caretaker was very helpful not only with help about the cottage (which was better than we have experienced before ) but also the best walks to go on with the children and on the surrounding area . All in all it was a perfect break!!!
