Traphouse is a lovely cottage with everything you need, also in a good location for days out. The local pub serves very tasty food. The scones, jam and clotted cream were an added bonus, along with the tea and milk, much needed after a long journey

The Traphouse cottage was lovely. Really quaint and cosy. Our 6ft Son did have a few bumps to the head due to the low doorways but still enjoyed his holiday.
