  • "What can I say, to say feeling like home was an understatement!"

    Tina and Greg were such amazing hosts, we had home made bread, chocolate cake, local jam, butter, milk, chocolates, hot chocolate, and a bottle of bubbly to welcome us! There was ample of information about local walks, near and far, attractions in the area, food, attractions, and instructions on how to use everything. There were robs and slippers for the hot tub, but tub had a seating area and fairy lights. The accomodation was delightful, heating was on morning and night, and the fire was amazing, heat the room up very quickly. All supplies for fire provided. The double bed was very comfy (although a little crampt for us) but a comfy double bed none the less, and very fluffy, comfy pillows! Bathroom was great, powerful rainful shower, first aid kit, showergel and towels provided. All in all, we loved our stay here, and the hosts were amazing. Hot tub private, and no noise around. Would love to stay here with my mum one weekend! Thank you for a great holiday

  • "We have had the most amazing time!"

    We originally booked this stay almost 2 years ago to have enjoyed last year but unfortunately Covid put a stop to it, however I must say Tina and Greg were amazing in being able to re-accommodate us for this year instead and we were made up by this. The holiday property is so much more than you can expect. The location is in a lovely country village but close enough to a shop as well (within driving distance), with great surroundings to explore - we were out every day, with so much to see and do! Tina and Greg put so many personal and meaningful touches around the place and it was a joy to stay in. The hot tub was an absolute bonus when getting back from a walk or day out. We were very lucky with the weather at this time of year but it didn't stop us doing anything we wanted to do and the property was so cosy and warm, perfect for colder nights. I would most definitely recommend this cottage, the owners are lovely in every way, very helpful and there whenever you need them. Thank you for a wonderful stay and we hope to return in the future!

    With our cottage being pretty much in the middle of nowhere, we had very bad signal on our mobile phones so were relying on the Wi-Fi but the connection was awful. We barely got 1 bar of signal from the Wi-Fi. Whilst it was actually quite nice to be cut off from the world and enjoy our break to the fullest- I do feel that if Wi-Fi is advertised, there should at least be a decent connection. There was no area of the cottage that provided us with even just a reasonable connection. Other than this, we had a really lovely time. The wood fire and the hot tub were excellent additions and even had some added extra's to get us going (like milk and bread and eggs). This was a really thoughtful and appreciated gesture.. Greg was very welcoming and the flat was very well equipped. We would like to thank both Tina and Greg for such an enjoyable stay
