    “Perfect property in a good location”

    Location - just outside the national park (by metres) and a great staging post to explore the area.

    Location - just outside the national park (by metres) and a great staging post to explore the area. Comfort - really well appointed with 3 large bedrooms and all the facilities you need, including a comforting wood burner. Nearby - pub (Covid issue for now) and great walks. Dogs - really dog friendly with a secure garden. Ambience - perfect. Motorway and A road nearby so easy access and background noise does not impinge on the cottage and in garden you soon forget it.
