    A cosy lounge and plenty of kitchen equipment. Lovely walking around the lake.

    This is a fabulous cottage, it suited our group for a family weekend perfectly. The pictures do not do the facilities justice, not only is the kitchen VERY well equipped but the space is great for multiple people to share space, we had plenty of room and didn't feel on top of each other. The setting is beautiful and we enjoyed watching the geese fly into the river and the chickens roam around the yard. Highly recommenced and I would definitely book again.

    Really lovely family holiday. We have been on several large family holidays to various places but this was one of the best for quality family time. We played rounders in one of the large fields near the property and games in the evenings. There is lots of attractions in surrounding areas. The property suited us, although one of the kitchens had a lot of flies but this was being dealt with by the owners. The owners were on site and very approachable should we have had any problems. We will definitely book again.

    Our large group really enjoyed staying here. The owner was very lovely and welcoming and her daughters showed our little group of eager kids endless patience when it came to the (seemingly) endless bunny petting that was on offer. The cottage is very large and offers great space for togetherness as well as little pockets for more individual quiet time. Although not a negative mark against the cottage owners, I would recommend that potentials read the notes very carefully before they book as there are no towels provided (I believe these can booked for a fee). I neglected to read that part but mainly because I have never booked a cottage that didn't provide towels. In our case we had to make a dash to the local 24 Tesco to get stocked up on towels. Also, please make sure that you bring a decent stock of cleaning wipes (or something similar) for the cleanup afterwards as I don't believe there are too many cleaning products in the cottage. Other than these (and, again, these aren't negatives towards the owners but more aimed as advice to potential bookers) I would highly recommend the cottage and especially if you have a large group.
