    • “Perfection!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We went to stay at Harold's Cottage with our two teenage children over the New Year period and its was a fantastic stay. The cottage was beautifully decorated absolutely spotless and a pleasure to stay in. There were very tasteful and Christmas touches in every room and some champagne and chocolates to see the new year in such a thoughtful touch which was very much appreciated. The cottage is cosy but spacious at the same time. In a very pretty village with everything that you need within walking distance. The views are wonderful and some great walks in the area. All round a perfect break would definitely recommend and will definitely be going back.”
