  • “Our first experience of a Self Catering Cottage could not have been better!”

    ...

    Both my wife and myself thoroughly enjoyed the quiet country life for a few days without the distractions of phones and WiFi! The cottage itself was extremely clean, well maintained and fully equipped. The surroundings and the local countryside walks were so beautiful. A hot cup of tea in front of an open fire after a 3.5hr hike in wet weather was just bliss! As a minor improvement: considering the lack of internet and therefore unable to plan local walks once there, perhaps pre-prepared LOCAL walk routes (or other activities) could be made available in the hut for the visitors. But the hosts were very hospitable and helpful, the location was convenient and the countryside was beautiful! What more can one ask for as a get away from stressful life! Would definitely go again, and this time with the whole family
