The owner was really friendly and the property is very well equipped with all the essentials. We found it to be a home away from home. The villages itself is very picturesque and we've thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you so much for having us

The property isn't your traditional stone cottage but hey who cares, it was far far better than most of the cottages we have stayed in previously, one being able to park on the drive, knowing we didn't have to do battle at the end of our day out and being stressed at having to find a suitable parking space like some cottages we have stayed in previously, this to us is one of the many things that made our holiday. it was perfect and could not be more 'home-from-home'. Guest service from Tracey, the owner of No 31, was fantastic. She was very efficient and thorough with all communication via email, she even sent us a location map, and text and was very pleased to offer assistance if required. On the day of arrival we were warmly greeted and given a guided tour. We were delighted to be given a "Welcome" basket of goodies including beautiful flowers, Chocolates, Jam and a bottle of wine chilling in the fridge and more. There was even 4 pints milk in the fridge so we could make a hot drink (with the tea and coffee provided) and settle in before needing to go out shopping. She was very obliging and happy to help. My wife and I absolutely loved the property, a little gem of a find, It has been tastefully furnished and were delighted to find that it looks even nicer and is more spacious when inside than it looks in the photos. The lounge is bright and airy. Tracey really has thought of everything that guests may need, there has been so much thought put in to equipping the cottage and attention to detail everything you need and more. The garden is also a wonderful space and very private for us to sit out in (table and chairs provided) and take in the peace and quiet. There are lovely walks at the back, the views are superb. It is very tranquil. In terms of self-catering, because the kitchen is so well equipped you could really choose a variety of things to cook and you'd highly likely find all the utensils etc you needed to cook/prepare it. Plus my wife loved the Denby. We were very lucky with the weather but should you need to/choose to stay in there is lots to do. A selection of magazines/ bookcase of books/games for various ages/ a tv, dvd and video player (bring your own DVD's). Having wifi was also a big bonus, great connection. As you can tell from our review we really enjoyed our stay at No 31. Thank you so much Tracey for our wonderful st
