    After our sat nav took us on a wild goose chase we eventually arrived at this amazingly spacious cottage. There was 8 of us who stayed here from the 9th-12th of February 2018. All females for 3 of our birthdays that land in Feb. The owner of the cottage communicated effectively and we had no trouble getting into the cottage and finding everything that we needed. Also, when the electricity went off on the Saturday morning it was one simple telephone call and two men arrived and fixed this immediately. The kitchen was our favourite room of the cottage it had a lovely country style feel, it had everything you could ask for in there and when we arrived the owners had even left a basket with a bottle of wine, some eggs, dishwasher tablets, fire starters and washing machine tabs which was amazing!! The living room and dining room were just as comfortable they fit the 8 of us in fine and it was nice to eat our breakfasts together around the HUGE dining table. The bedrooms were cute and comfortable, very clean all had a set of towels and a bar of soap on them on arrival. Beds were extremely comfortable, bedding was clean and the views from the windows were beautiful (especially in the snow). As it was February we didn't spend much time outside but when we did we went into the hot tub in the garden which was lovely and hot and fit 5 of us in comfortably (the other 3 didn't fancy it). By the back door there was a separate towel for each of us specifically for the hot tub - these came in handy when the heavens decided to open and the hail stones came down heavy ha!! We did the mile walk to the pub at the bottom of the cottage "Lion Hotel" the staff seemed surprised to see 8 females walking in to play pool at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. However, they were friendly and we had a lovely chill there for an hour or so. The walk was relatively ok, we are not the fittest bunch so the up hill bits there was a lot of huffing and puffing but we made it :) Overall, a fantastic property that met all our needs, we had a fabulous weekend and will be sure to recommend this place to anyone we speak too!!

A spacious separate dining room, also benefiting from a woodburner is a great place to socialise with friends and loved ones whist enjoying a delicious home-cooked meal, before retiring to the sitting room which offers enough comfy seating for all guests.

Outside, not only can you savour the delightful views but there is also a hot tub and sauna to really ensure you have the most relaxing holiday possible.

A patio with garden furniture also benefits from a large wall-mounted TV, the prefect space for dining alfresco and socialising during those warmer months.
