    We had a great time at this cottage for a weekend away with a few friends. The cottage itself was beautiful, clean and well equipped. The only reason I haven't given 10's across the board is that it is listed as having a pub within a mile walking distance, which is true but it is a mile up some very steep hills and mostly on the road as there are no pavements (country lanes) and some of the walkways through the surrounding woods were unusable. This clearly isn't the fault of the owners though, just something to bear in mind if a short, easy stumble to and from the pub is what you're after. The garden across the road was perfect and was ideal for the dogs. Lovely place and would definitely consider staying here again.

    Loved the cottage. Just wish there was a phone as none of our mobiles could receive a network.

    We spent a wonderful Christmas in Travellers rest. It was everything we could have wished for. It had even been decorated for us and Father Christmas managed to find the correct chimney to bring presents. It was warm and cosy, with plenty of room for 6 adults, 3 excited children & 2 dogs. The cottage was very well equipped with everything we needed There are lovely walks for the dogs, with lots of wildlife around. Would love to stay again.
