Previous visitors' comments about Cranberry Cottage:
The cottage was in a beautiful setting with an excellent view from the lounge windows across the hills. It was a joy to sit and look at the view and the peace and quiet was utterly perfect and made for a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of normal life.

A lovely comfortable, warm cottage in an excellent location. The covers provided for the furniture helped with having a dog. Fresh eggs and tasty jam was a nice surprise.
