  • "The property is ideally located in a beautiful village, perfect for isolation and a peaceful break."

    There are loads of walks around with stunning views and a great pub over the road with friendly local staff and people. The cottage itself served all our needs for a great family holiday with small children and the wood burning fire makes for a lovely homely touch. Our host met us on arrival and was an extremely pleasant lady, who welcomed us very well and explained everything for us. She even kindly left 3 Easter eggs out for our children, lovely woman.
