Relaxing Break

5 of 5
The Cottage was just as described if not more, Diane and her husband greeted us on arrival , everything was explained on how to use the hot tub and anything else we may need. There was a book on all walking routes you can take and a little history about the location, very helpful. A complimentary pack was left for us which i thought was a nice touch. A very quite and private location. Our two dogs loved the endless walks. The Hot tub i can sum up in one word AMAZING. Thank you for a lovely stay.

5 of 5
Only stayed 3 nights for a short break but we absolutely loved our time in the cottage. It was very clean and tastefully decorated. The weather was a bit on the chilly side but the cottage was very warm and cosy and the beds and sofa bed very comfortable. A very nice welcome tray was left for us and also fresh flowers...a very lovely touch. Would stay again if in the area and would recommend to others.
