  • “Thoroughly enjoyed our stay - owners had definitely thought through what was required to make the stay as comfortable as possible.”

    Owners stay in cottage next door and were very friendly but we're sensitive to our privacy. We appreciated the kindness they offered. This was one holiday that I would have definitely stayed on but alas had to return home. Hopefully we will return.

Spend your evenings in the spacious open-plan sitting room, with plenty of furniture to curl up and unwind into the evening, with a warming woodburning stove to keep you warm during those chillier winter months.

The kitchen has been fitted to a high-standard and provides delightful wooden units and sleek worktops, with a range of contemporary appliances so you can easily cook up a storm for the whole family!

Walk through to the ground-floor bedrooms, with a double greeting you first, and leads into a twin bedroom.

Both bedrooms will share the en-suite shower room attached to the master bedroom, where you can enjoy a relaxing soak after a tiring day.

Sit out on the front patio area and simply delight in its stunning country views surrounding with a warming cup of tea of a morning, also an excellent place to catch up on some reading.
