Comfortable cottage in good location

5 of 5
Spring Well Cottage was the perfect holiday home for the two of us, perched in a picturesque ideal for exploring the area. The cottage was well equipped, comfortable and very 'easy' to live in. The kitchen was well equipped with plates and cups etc and cooking items and the cooker was efficient, a bonus was the dishwasher. The wifi was perfectly usuabke for emails and social media use and a DVD player was available, I would suggest that you take some of your own favourite films, the collection at the cottage was not a kRge as some other places we had stopped. We have stopped in the area on numerous occasions so knew what to expect from local amenities, but we were sunrises at how well placed the footage was for access to local pubs,cafes and restaurants the nearest being only 15 minutes drive away. Communication with the owner and caretaker was very good and reassuring to know that someone was on hand if there were any problems, of which we had none. The peace and quiet and the fantastic vista made this the perfect place, whilst not being totally isolated either. We plan to return and holiday at Springwell sometime soon.

5 of 5
We had a fantastic holiday. The house was spacious and spotless. The owner was friendly and welcoming and we all appreciated the homemade buns on arrival, thank you Raymond. The local area is stunningly beautiful and we all want to come back again in the future and would definitely want to stay in this property again:)
