Delightful cottage in a peaceful location

5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week at Thiernswood Cottage. It is very well equipped and is located in a peaceful area with views across the moors and with easy access to visitor attractions. The owners were very welcoming and we look forward to future visits.

Charming cottage in a beautiful location

5 of 5
We have just spent a fabulous week in School Cottage. It was everything we were hoping for. The cottage is delightful and is equipped with everything that you could possibly need. We loved the location, however you need to be prepared with your food etc as there is no village shop. This did not matter though as the local pub (Kings Head) served the most delicious fish and chips!! Lots of places to visit by car and if you are keen walkers then this is paradise!! Definitely recommend.
