Cosy and warm coach house. Comfortable. Well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 5 days. Our two boys aged 8y and 6y loved the big garden with play house and football nets. Lots to do in the area for people looking to have good walks and a generally relaxing break. Lovely owners. Would definately recommend and would be happy to visit again.

We stayed at the coach house for a week at the beginning of December. The house is beautiful with all the things you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay. David and Gillian are lovely and are there if you need them! I would definitely recommend.

Beautiful family holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted straight away by one of the owners, Gillian, she was lovely, she showed us around, explained what we needed to know and left us to relax and settle in. We loved staying here, the place is immaculate and very homely. We would definitely come back.

Well equipped and very comfortable Coach House

  • 5 of 5

Very enjoyable stay in this excellent Coach House. Everything had been thought of to make our stay hassle free e.g. all kitchen essentials including washing up liquid and condiments were provided. Heating very effective in keeping the house cosy. Gillian and David are very welcoming and helpful owners. This was our third stay - say no more!
