The cottages are close to lots of places of interest and easy to find. As a family we would thoroughly recommend the Pilgrims Rest experience. We are already looking forward to returning in the near future. Steve and Jill Baker

It is fabulously located for local amenities and with the moors virtually on your doorstep, there are a number of excellent walks close to hand. We had a really good break and I would recommend the property for anyone one looking to get away from it all.
