It's very well equipped with high quality fixtures and fittings, and immaculately presented. Owners Lisa and Andy are nearby if you need anything but otherwise you have complete privacy. It's a great area for walking and cycling/mountain biking and the private lake is great for a relaxing few hours fishing - I caught many perch during my stay and one close to 3lbs. Highly recommended!

The pictures and other reviews sold it to us and it certainly didn't disappoint. Set in amongst woodland and rolling fields with lush views, we loved the 3 outdoor seating areas and the bench down a path for watching the stunning sunsets from. The cottage is spacious, the kitchen well equipped and the decor tasteful and matching the beauty of the building. We stayed in the summer but with the log burners it would be super cosy in winter too. The hosts (and little dog) were very friendly and made us feel welcome. A tranquil rural setting but lots of places are within driving distance - bring swimming costumes for the nearby lake beach! Can't recommend highly enough, and such good value for money. We will be back!

A warm friendly welcome from the hosts who live in the house attached to the cottage, Kevin gave us some good advice on nearby facilities and places to visit, great area for historical interest which we loved. Nice rural aspect but close to chalus with all amenities, handy supermarket just down the road. The cottage was spacious and well equipped, good sized bedrooms both with large ensuite bathrooms, one with a shower and one with a large corner bath, the log fire was especially cosy on the chilly autumn evenings. We loved it and would definitely stay again when visiting the area, can't wait to go back!
