The wood burning fire is a bonus. The beds are super comfy too! Overall a lovely, relaxing break and we hope to visit again in the summer.

The cottage is fantastic full of quaint rustic caricature and clean + tidy . Sofa is great to snuggle up on in front of the log burner after a cold day out . Would recommend the Tardis cottage to everyone , we will definitely be going back for another stay

It was modern, clean, contemporary and excellent value for money. The location is remote enough to feel away from it all, but still within commuting distance of local amenities. The hosts provided complimentary items such as, toiletries, drinks, and cookies which is a nice touch. Being more of a hotel family, the process of booking this get-away was straight forward and user friendly with clear and concise information at all stages. I would recommend this cottage.
