    Would echo much of what Julie, the previous reviewer said, though to be fair the wi-fi was adequate. Approach to the cottage is described as being via 'a private drive' which is in fact a single track county lane with no passing bays. On our visit we found much of it overgrown with brambles, a situation not helped by the roses adjacent the wall of the farmhouse. Arriving in a 4x4 or similar large vehicle it was impossible to drive this road without touching brambles/roses one side or the other of the narrow lane. As a result both sides of my 6 month old Range Rover sustained scratches that cost me £168.00 to have professionally polished out. It may have been worse had I not then personally walked the lane and cut back all the offending vegetation prior to traversing it a second time. I would hope the owners take note of this and take steps to ensure future visitors don't experience the same.

    The Bothy is a pleasant 2 storey stone cottage. It is ideal for those looking for isolation. We found it to be far too isolated. There was nothing within walking distance. There is no mobile phone signal and the wi fi is very poor. This is ideal if you are looking for a complete escape. We needed to keep in touch with our business and this proved virtually impossible. The Bothy did say it was a romantic get away - please be aware that there are 2 very small sofas and we could not both fit on one - so not so romantic in the lounge. The bedroom had 2 single beds - they were joined together but with 2 single duvets - again not at all romantic. Also there is no wardrobe just a few coat hangers on the wall. We had hoped to cook lots of meals -hence why we booked a cottage instead of a hotel - but there was virtually no work top space and the pans and utensils were poor quality. There was a small dishwasher - but not enough crockery and cutlery to really make use of it.

    The holiday was a honeymoon present for my granddaughter. She and her husband were extremely pleased with the cottage and have said they are saving up to book it again because they enjoyed it so much.

    We absolutely loved the cottage once we found it at the end of unnamed lanes, a piece of Paradise with beautiful countryside all around. The owners were welcoming, friendly, and helpful as well as providing welcome extras, home made bread, milk, eggs and even a bottle of wine in the fridge and a small vase of flowers on the kitchen table. Will one day return hopefully. Grateful thanks to Charles and Amanda.

    Really lovely cosy cottage in a very peaceful area. Great location for visiting Fountains Abbey and Brixham Rocks. The owners were so welcoming and we would love to visit again.
