A wonderfully remote and pretty location. The house was spotless, very well equipped and absolutely perfect for our family of 5 with a jack russell. We went for the countryside and were not disappointed. The walks from the house are lovely whilst a short drive away are plenty more.

Beautiful cottage with stunning views - lovely and cool in the heatwave. Very spacious and well equipped - even better than the photos show. The beds were big and very comfy. We did several walks from the the doorstep and had a brilliant time - even teenagers. Just beware the driveway - it's steeper than steep. We arrived after it had rained and thRead moree car couldn't make it up without unloading some stuff. There is a parking space at the bottom if you don't fancy it but it's a bit of a trek. Hide

We loved this cottage, it's been beautifully done with attention to detail and is a home from home. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you could need and we loved the welcome pack, particularity the treats of our dog. The views are stunning and we were lucky to get a clear night and see the amazing stars. Great walks from the door stRead moreep and the 2 pubs we went too were great too. Would highly recommend.

Lovely cottage, beautiful views, very comfortable, up a VERY steep driveway. We have a Volvo Estate and bottomed it every time we went up. It would probably be difficult in the winter. Steep spiral staircase inside. Very comfortable beds. Good lighting.
