    Lovely cottage with plenty of space for ten people to dine and relax afterwards in the lounge. Everything you need is included. Only negative was the location of the downstairs bathroom, you had to walk through it to get to the bedroom and there were no locks on the door. I would still stay there again tho.

    Really lovely cottage. Only complaint would be a dog over at the owners home which barked and whined all night for the whole of our stay. A shame really as otherwise brilliant!

    Great place, plenty of space, all the amenities you could need. We only had 6 of us there but if you filled it it would be great value for money and a great place for a social weekend with friends. Location wise is not walking distance to anything (but you get the benefit of glorious peace and quiet in a pretty setting) but only a short drive from everything we needed. So location score is a matter of your priorities! Highly recommended.

    Lovely few days at The Travellers Rest. Clean, comfortable and roomy cottage. The owner was extremely helpful with a wi-fi issue. The only down side was the very poor lighting in the living room. A very good choice if you want peace and tranquility

    We had a wonderful stay at Travellers Test, beautiful location and a lovely spacious house! The balcony was especially lovely and enjoyed lots of evenings sitting outside.

    This was our fourth visit to Travellers Rest as a family we really enjoy the house and location although we were slightly surprised that the heating and hot water was controlled remotely
