    We had a particularly relaxing time at Valley View Cottage and would definitely book again. It is a snug little cottage with a mesmerising view over the valley. The sofas and beds were very comfortable and everywhere was clean. There were lots of little touches that made us feel quite at home, there was even a choice of heavy or light duvets! Other property owners please note - a choice of duvets for your properties is a must.

    Excellent holiday at this lovely, comfortable, spotless cottage. The owners have put so much thought into this cottage with all the little added extras and the quality of equipment. Even making provision for our doggies by providing dishes and treats. Deserves more than a score of 10!

    We had a wonderful short break at Valley View Cottage, The Cottage is set in idyllic place, with wonderful views from the very well equipped and maintained garden. The Cottage is very cosy with comfortable beds and spotlessly clean, Great kitchen with all the amenities you would need, a welcome pack was waiting for us on arrival with all the basics, Bread, Milk and even an Easter egg. Would highly recommend the cottage for a short break and we will hopefully be returning.
