    “This cottage is simply wonderful!”


    It has absolutely everything you need, to make an enjoyable stay. The hot tub is very nice and in an enclosed veranda It looks out to the most beautiful garden, I have ever seen! Inside the cottage, my favourite room is the front room, the decor, very much to my taste and the ambiance is just so relaxing!!! The study area, perfect for reading the odd book or playing a board game (not that we used this room, to be honest.) The dining room, very spacious and perfect to host everyone for a family meal!! The kitchen and utility room, again, very well catered for and very much to my taste! Out of all the places I have stayed, I have never felt so at home and I really mean that. There is a cosy little hideaway, which lets in lots of sun or perfect for listening to the rain too!!! It also has a PS4 for any of those gamers out there....... There are three very large bedrooms, all with I think, king size beds. One bedroom has ensuite and there is a family bathroom for the other two bedrooms, the bath is to die for! Again, all rooms decorated and furnished with such style. The bear theme around the house really does make this cottage and the bear at the top of the stairs is simply beautiful. I love this house and will be back, just not sure when, with all the madness in the world at the moment! Thank you very much for a lovely stay and for the Presecco and chocolates, what a lovely touch!

A restful night's sleep awaits you in each of the three beautiful bedrooms upstairs, boasting views of green pastures.

The master suite benefits en-suite facilities, whilst the other two king-size rooms are served by the country-style bathroom.

To the exterior, the mature enclosed garden is filled with lush shrubbery, pretty flowers in a riot of colour and a charming outdoor swing enjoying a balmy afternoon, this enclosed area is perfect for your four-legged friends too!

This is the ideal spot to sit and reminisce on the day's adventures.

A soak in the covered hot tub is also a must.

For the thrill seekers, Adrenalin Quarry is simply a must, it provides hours of fun on a 450 metre long zip wire.
