Kay was hospitable & very helpful and even prepared a fire for us before we arrived! Location is excellent and leant itself to exploring the countryside and relaxing after a very busy year. We will hopefully return again & I can recommend staying here to anyone who wants a genuinely fantastic place to stay!

We arrived to an amazing home made lemon drizzle cake and the best stocked an equipped cottage we have ever rented. The bonus of the log burner just adds to the ambience and although the cottage is lovely and warm, the log burner makes things even better. The furniture was extremely comfortable and I have never see so many CD's and DVD's that we could make use of. Martin the owner was also very friendly and helpful. I would love to re visit in summer to make use of the lovely back garden.
