  • "This was the second time we'd stayed at this site and it has most things that are needed."

    The bathroom is cosmetically fine but needs better ventilation to help stop fungal growth and for idiots like me - a more powerful shower would be appreciated - Try a smaller head. We all loved the site - the views are stunning - especially at sunset and the walks are great for the dogs

    Plenty big enough for 3 adults and two border collies for one week. Spectacular views from the cottage due to autumn colours and autumnal mornings meaning the view changed on a daily basis. Would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone. Cozy and welcoming and the view - well its just amazing.

  • "This cottage is in a glorious location and pictures really don't do it justice."

    The cottage was spotless when we occupied and the owners laid on a lot of little extras that we didn't expect such as tea and coffee and all cleaning supplies which saved us bringing unnecessary items. The only criticism we have is that it is not fully accessible for a wheelchair bound person but is fully manageable as long that person has some assistance.

    If I was being picky there was too many dogs around most cottages had one or two, and the two smallest were the noisiest .
