                                                            Having read the description and the all 5 star reviews we arrived with high hopes but also some reservation, this cottage could not be this fantastic. Boy were we wrong. The cottage is in perfect condition equipped with just about everything you could possibly need and then Angela and Malcolm top it of by things like having a huge folder of local and more remote activities, a welcoming snack waiting in the refrigerator and a lovely subtle flower bouquet to name a few things. The cottage is situated in a lovely area with plenty of activities and interesting sights are in short driving distances. Can not recommend this highly enough, to bad we can not give six out of five stars because that's what this stay deserves.

                                                            We have just spent a week at this wonderful barn with our adult children and 10 week old grandaughter. Everybody thought the barn, surroundings and people were fantastic. The barn is very well equipped and has a lovely atmosphere. The welcome basket with cream cake started the holiday off perfectly! Thank you very much!

                                                            Stayed for 1 night with a group of friends for my hen do and a bit of a Sheffield university reunion. The house is really well located, on a safe and quiet road, and is incredibly spacious, with lots of room for the 9 of us to stay. The house was clean and warm, though the decor is definitely 'quirky'! The communication with the owners was excellent, and they cheerfully answered all of my questions really quickly!
