The cottage was great, had all the basic requirements and was comfortable. The only downside was that there was no central heating, just electric heaters (you are charged for the electricity at the end of your visit) and a log burner that heated the pipes - there no logs. We had to forage for fire wood on our first evening just warm up the cottage by a few degrees. I would recommend this cottage to family and friends and would definitely come back.

Everything about the house was perfect and it was a pleasure to get up in the morning to see such amazing views. The rooms are spacious and the house has a very 'lived in' quality to it. This is not a stark, impersonal property, as quite a few holiday lets are; it is a very welcoming house and has everything a family would need. Quite simply, it is the best house we have ever stayed in and we've been travelling to the area for over 20 years. Thank you for your hospitality. It was lovely meeting you and your grandson and we really hope we can stay there again. Best wishes. Janet Lunnon

There was four adults and four children and never felt that there wasn't adequate room. Our children range in age from 18months to 8yrs and it was safe and child friendly. The bathrooms are very modern and clean. Would have no problem recommending the property.
