What a lovely place, we arrived Friday to find the owner had left us milk and biscuits which was nice, we got a good last minute deal and needed a break it was just what we needed! the cottage it’s self is cosy and has everything we needed for our self catering stay, there are 4 cottages in total. it had a stove and all the coal and logs we needed, it was cold outside so we got cosy, there was a lovely hot tub which is shared which we enjoyed, we took our two dogs who enjoyed local walks, lots of sheep so need to be on leads, the owners are a lovely family who run the b&b it was lovely to see them enjoying time with their family too! The beds were comfy and everything spotless we want to come back with our family as I think they would enjoy it. Great pubs locally and a well stocked spar with a fantastic butchers in there! Thank you it was lovely 

Beautiful, comfortable, warm, lovely cottage, was a perfect couple's retreat for us. Really enjoyed our stay and the hosts were so lovely and welcoming. For us, it was a little remote, but there was a spar nearby. The driving & walking routes were stunning. Big shout out to the beautiful smell of freshly washed, soft linen, that felt luxurious!
