Lovely quiet house

Lovely stay in a quiet area but close enough to a town to not get bored

Stunning views

5 of 5
Great stay. The cottage is absolutely lovely with amazing views for miles and miles. Paul and James did all they could to ensure a perfect stay. A log burner set to light, a real Christmas Tree, candles, crackers, ivy, Prosecco and mince pies, they even managed a covering of snow on Boxing Day! Thank you!
