A really beautiful cottage with everything you need for a relaxing break. Lovely walks straight from the cottage. Only downside was the restricted height in the two top floor bedrooms but the rest of the cottage more than made up for it.

My second visit to this cottage. The dog loved it, views are amazing. Very well equipped cottage and I look forward to visiting again in the future. Access to the lake was a welcome bonus. And great news that the internet connection has been upgraded since our first visit, we got 26mb down and 1mb up which is fine for streaming video!

This was truly a slice of heaven on Earth. The peacefulness of its location will be unforgettable; a garden full of ripe fruit and just watching the stock and wildlife was pure joy. Everyone we met was friendly and helpful - the farmers and estate people as well as at the Local Shop. We also enjoyed the welcome cake and flowers.

Keeper's Cottage is absolutely delightful. The kitchen is well-appointed and the lounge is comfortable and spacious. There is also a really super smaller lounge. The garden is lovely and the views are amazing. The 2 main bedrooms are great. On the downside, the 2 upstairs bedrooms are small and, because they are in the roof space, not easy to standRead more upright in. The steep and shallow stairs up to them are not easy to tackle.

Lovely well equipped cottage in an out of the way location near to the M5. Excellent base for exploring on foot or on wheels. Remote enough to be secluded but you can still get pizza and online shopping delivered. Enclosed garden with good views. Was nice being greeted by sheep, lambs and cattle in the surrounding fields over the walls.
