                                                            Just back from a 2night stay at this lovely property. Accommodation was fantastic, clean, modern and cosy. Large garden at the back with woodland area was a bonus. Kids loved exploring and finding the little surprises dotted around. Wish we had booked to stay longer. Hopefully we will return sooner rather than later. Would highly recommend.

                                                            A beautiful house full of character in a great location

                                                            My family and I all stayed in this wonderful property for a long weekend to celebrate two family occasions. The house was spotless and it had everything you could possibly need. We would definitely stay again as we thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommend.

                                                            Nice little cottage equiped with all you need for a home away from home and well priced.

                                                            4 of 5
                                                            Master bed is king size but the room is a bit small. Hot water tank heating and shower could do with improvement minor tap drips and bath grouting repairs required. The property is nice and clean and well equipped. The broadband is speedy enough, mobile reception poor. Village is nice with hotel and shop/post office. Wine - coffee - tea etc as welcome items is a nice extra. The area is within easy driving for the lakes and the Penines etc.
