There are many cottages in the area that remain from the mining heyday and several have been converted in self catering holiday lets.

The whole family (myself, husband & 4 children) had a fabulous time. The cottage itself is very comfortable and furnished with a clean, modern design. Wood flooring, plenty of leather sofas. The granite kitchen was maybe a bit small but had everything we needed including an extra large fridge. All very nice. We never felt the need to check how to work the heating as it was always warm. The bedrooms were good size for a holiday home and we enjoyed having a wetroom attached to our bedroom. Although you sometimes do need to use the squeegee after a shower. This was no problem. The rather large TV was great for watching the supplied videos & we even had a BBQ one afternoon. Views from both front and back were very nice. The pool and gym were exceptional. The gym was small, but very well equipped, with a step machine, boke, treadmill and a multi-gym. Although the kids were not allowed to use it. The pool and hot tub were brill. The endless pool machine (once we were shown how to use it) was so simple to use & provided great entertainment (and even a bit of exercise). Although the pool is small, this machine more than compensated. The grounds themselves are lovely, with space to play football, donkeys, fishing (we didn’t fish but plenty of others wre & seemd to be catching quite a few) and a large games room. This was a real highlight with table tennis, table football (both free) and air hockey. There are supermarkets and pubs nearby (although nothing in walking distance) and the place was easy to find. A recommended place to stay.

The facilities were ideal, the tennis court, boules and football goals were a massive hit with our boys 👍 We will definitely be back and hopefully we can sample the heated swimming pool next time.
