It was very cosy, beautifully decorated and had all the facilities we needed. The bathroom was superb and very spacious. James had provided some lovely provisions to welcome us - delicious bread, home made apple juice and some really lovely crab apple jelly, as well as milk and butter in the fridge. James also provided us with a decorated Christmas tree for £20, which was nice to have. Would love to return in the summer and make the most of the surroundings. Would be perfect for a couple wanting a quiet getaway in a wonderful location for walking.

Wow we weren't disappointed! The photos faithfully capture the accommodation. The kitchen was extremely well stocked with everything you need to cook with and the local Spar shop povided an excellent variety of food if you had forgotten anything. The bedrooms were very homely with plenty of storage space, particularly important if you intend to bring lots of bulky walking clothes. The log burner in the lounge was easy to master and the supply of logs provided gets you started. The wifi was good and we had no problems with reception. The cottage has a shower and a bath - so everyone will be happy. The village is quiet but served by a local shop and a couple of pubs all literally on your doorstop. The church is equally close and you be treated to bell ringing practice and a clock that strikes on the hour - not something you get in London! That said it certainly didn't keep up awake. Plenty of excellent walking. We tended to go further afield so a car is important but there were certainly plenty of walks on your doorstep. We were looking for a comfortable home from home experience and we weren't disappointed.

There's fishing available (ask the owners) and the lakes are well stocked with large rainbow trout. It was great to have the wood burner (some fuel was also supplied) as we love a real fire. It may be basic, but it was clean and just the getaway we needed. The barbecue came in handy and we left feeling recharged and rested! Chris was friendly on arrival and we saw Ellen as we were leaving. Apart from that we just saw a couple of fishermen and that was it. We enjoyed the peace and tranquility and would recommend it for that! Thanks Chris & Ellen !
