This was an excellent holiday cottage.

Mrs Bentley, Edinburgh, December 2013

Lovely cottage, very welcoming. Loved cooking on the range.

Dr Belcher, London, November 2013

As we have never visited this area before the location of the cottage was ideal for all the places we wanted to see. The cottage was everything we wanted, and more besides.

Mr Mcbryer, Newton-le-Willows, October 2013

A fantastically well-appointed and decorated cottage.
