Beautiful smart and well equipped cottage for 2.

5 of 5
Very smart and tidy, very tastefully decorated, comfortable bed. Owner just down the road able to give help with things to do, routes etc. Fresh flowers and welcome gifts, fully supplied with basics like cooking oil, salt pepper, sauces etc. We were the first guests though! Fast Wifi which was a welcome surprise given the size of the village. Great local pub with good food. Just beware the entrance to the parking space is fairly tight, we were just OK with a people carrier but don't expect to get anything bigger in.

Wonderful, relaxing, stylish cottage

5 of 5
Had a wonderful long weekend at Lowside Barn. Claire and Chris were friendly, welcoming and unobtrusive. The cottage is beautiful, a converted barn which has real warmth and a very homely feel, whilst being stylishly decorated. It's well equipped, super clean and in a beautiful location - the views of the surrounding area are stunning. Highly suitable for anyone who loves walking then returning to a home from home. We didn't want to leave.
