The cottage itself was very well equipped everything you needed for a comfortable stay.. The owner harriot was very helpful and left some mince pies and wine on our arrival this was a lovely touch.. Will definitely return ...would highly recommend this property to friends and family

Myself and 13 old school friends stayed for a long weekend at the beginning of December. We were given clear directions and it was very easy to find even in the pitch black. We were welcomed with little gift baskets in each barn, a thoughtful touch. Harriet popped in to see us on the first night and make sure we had everything. Both barns are decorated beautifully with a real rustic/country feel. The big fires kept us snug all weekend. The views surrounding the barns are outstanding and there were lots of walks going in all directions. The facilities were brilliant and enabled us to cook big meals for 14 and all eat in the same barn- not an easy feat. As a group we have been to a couple of holiday lets and this is by far the best- we are already in deep discussion about going back this summer! Thank you to Harriet for being such a great host!
