We cooked from fresh (mostly local produce) most nights with no problem - facilities were great. The view from the property is lovely and everything as advertised. We hope to return sometime maybe with family as there was plenty of room. However, the peace and quiet was perfect for just the two of us. Paul was very helpful and available close by - we had no cause to call on him during our stay as everything was perfect. We chose this property because we wanted somewhere that would be lovely to stay inside if the weather was poor. The weather was mostly fine though so we went for many walks locally and on the nearby moors. We explored the local coast, towns and villages which are beautiful - a great base for exploring the area.

For us it was close to family we were visiting but it is close to many pretty places. It really is a Home from Home with so much provided. We usually travel with all the basics but there is no need. There was a hamper of goodies and sausages, bacon etc in the fridge and even some toiletries in the bathroom in case anything had been forgotten. The cottage is very comfortable and was warm on arrival, which was late, so that was really appreciated. TV and Wifi great. Our two dogs and cat were welcome which we really appreciate. With its own entrance and drive, it is very private. There are lovely walks around the village and lanes. Outside space for eating when weather permits. The owner, Sheila, is very welcoming and friendly. We will definitely stay again when visiting our family. Thank you. Five stars.
