    A great place a bit out of the way and you do need a car for any amenities

    Cross Tree Cottage was an excellent fit for us. Centrally placed in a quiet village with superb walking right from the cottage door. The cottage was very well appointed, clean and a treat to spend time in.

    Had a great time in a lovely cottage. I would suggest a family stay as there was only 2 of us staying and the cottage is huge! Couldn't fault a thing.

    Well appointed cottage which welcomed dogs. Owner had provided local dog walks which were a great help. A pity that the local shops have closed.

    We very much enjoyed our stay at Crosstree Cottage and liked the village where we used the local pub, visited the church and walked the walks with our dog. The cottage was very clean and comfortable and well equipped. We would certainly use the cottage again if visiting the area.

    Lovely cottage with a great kitchen which has everything one could need. Too warm for the fire but no complaints about that. Lovely sun trap in the patio garden. Comfy beds. Would recommend it to others
