    We had a great week, we were lucky with the weather and went out every day. We didn't have time to be bored or even use the pool, we found it a comfortable stay except the single beds. My daughter loved the goats and my son inlaw loved the walks and photo oppertunities. Easy to clean floors, but going forward we feel the cottage will need work doing on it, as a tidy up. New mattresses on single beds, and pot holes filled in the track leading to the cottage.

    Perfect if you are looking for a remote location to get away from everything, limited mobile signal and no data connection or wifi. Not a place to come if you aren't travelling with pets as there are pet smells within the cottage and courtyard, but we didn't mind that and felt much more at ease with our dogs than we would have been if the place was immaculate. To reach the cottage you do have to travel up a pot holed, long driveway, but that is due to the rural location, it's only an inconvenience for 2 minutes. It is on a main route from the airport and the planes fly above quite low and loud from early hours to late at night, but didn't really bother us saying that. The woods are lovely nearby and a good place to walk your dogs. We did have a tick issue on returning home though, so it may be wise to protect your pet before you go. The cottage is filled with everything you could need, far more than usual self catering accommodation that I've been to before. Lovely kitchen, complete with dishwasher and washing machine and all cleaning products provided, and a lovely clean bathroom. We had biscuits and tea making groceries provided on arrival and even a bunch of flowers set out on the table for us. We would go back, as we enjoyed our stay, but don't expect the Ritz as it's a place that accepts multiple dogs.

    Yes you hear the planes but isn't that pretty obvious due to its location!? We had an amazing time chilling and walking with our dogs! Cottage was clean, tidy, warm and well equipped! Couldn't have asked for much more!

    Pros: Decent shower, nice towels, good size main bedroom with comfortable bed. Cons: jet aircraft right overhead from 6.30am, dog friendly therefore smelly dirty furniture, terrible bumpy pot-holed track to get there. Scruffy garden and yard. No wifi, no mobile signal. Paintball yard right next to cottage. Overall, not suitable as a holiday cottage

    Had a lovely time. Took three dogs with us who absolutely loved it. There are extensive woods to walk the dogs and the cottage is well off the beaten track. We only saw someone else twice on our walks during the whole time we were there. There is no wifi and rarely a mobile phone signal, which was wonderful for us as we could truly escape and have a well needed rest. The cottage came equipped with everything you could need, even a book by my favourite author that I hadn't read. We would have no hesitation in coming back again.
