    This cottage could do with an extensive refurbishment. Also the water pressure in the shower was non-existent. However, the view and location are what makes this property. It overlooks heathland and there are ponies and donkeys everywhere. There is an excellent pub nearby within walking distance.

    We have been before and love the location and being able to walk straight onto the heathland from the cottage. Our dog loves her walks. It was great seeing the ponies and cows wandering by Unfortunately it was slightly spoilt by the bathroom, it hadn't been cleaned as there were long dark hairs on the shower wall and the tray. The mastic all round the tray was black and I felt unhappy using it. It wasn't as bad when we came earlier in the year. I am not the only one to comment as it had been mentioned in the visitors book. However we will book it again and hope this was a one off.

    Had a really lovely stay here, was made to feel very welcome. Would have preferred an enclosed garden space or fenced off from pool area but location and straight on to forest made this better. Lots of wildlife and tranquil experience, would definitely love to stay again!
