The cottage had the essential facilities for our stay and ride (similarly walks) brought you quickly onto the moor or down to the canal. Supermarket delivery worked well too (Tesco in our case). The Busfeild Arms (less than 0.5mile/1Km) was a welcome stop on the return trip! Parking was difficult because of the steep drive however, for us once the car was parked that was it - others may find this more difficult (although it is possible to park on the road nearby). We met a number of very friendly locals that added to the pleasure of the stay. The wine was a nice touch. For those with a fear of loosing connectivity the 4G (Vodaphone) signal is superb - the mast being a 100yards/metres up the road.

The cottage is in a great location with only a few minutes walk to the pubs where you can get food in the evenings if you don't want to cook. The cottage was very comfortable and had a lot of extra things that holiday lets often don't have. The kitchen was very well equipped. There are some great walks from the cottage and within a short driving distance. Parking is at a premium, but we did manage to get a space each day in one of the two car parks. The lovely lady next door, Anita, kindly let us park in her driveway to load up on our last day, so no problem. All in all, a great holiday - thank you Christopher.
