  • "An excellent accommodation far better than the photos show."

    Great location off the beaten track for a quiet dog friendly break. Great local walks and easy to reach local towns for shopping , tourist and attractions. A lovely welcome pack. All appliances and kitchen cooking equipment were fine for self catering in style. Although the owner lives next door no problems with noise or intrusion.

  • "Felt very homely without being twee."

    The interior surprised us by its size, it was generally bigger than it looked in the website pictures, particularly the kitchen. Cleanliness was immaculate. It is immediately obvious that the owner takes pride in the high standard of the property, and quite rightly too!
