  • "A beautiful well appointed cottage, connected to the owner’s property."

    The area is very quiet, with little traffic passing by, if you would like a peaceful break to recharge the batteries then this is it. Really enjoyed our stay even with the wet weather.

  • "Howe cottage was a lovely place to stay it was new so very smart and very clean situated in a very peaceful picturesque farm."

    The owners Arthur and Julie made us very welcome along with their five friendly dogs. There are a few things it lacked one being cupboard space but that wasn’t too much of an issue for us as there was only the two of us.

  • "What an absolutely fantastic place to stay - the location is central to numerous attractions, whilst rural enough to have a peaceful and quiet stay in the countryside."

    The cottage itself is finished to an exceptional standard with all the amenities you could need, with a beautiful garden which has a BBQ area and seating for you to enjoy the surroundings. One of the highlights of our stay was the attentiveness of the owners, who were able to reccomend fantastic local sights and places to eat. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return in the future!
