    We had a great time on Mount Pleasant Farm the owners were so welcoming. Even the dog enjoyed himself. Would suggest there were instructions on how the microwave worked. Otherwise could not fault it.

    Beautiful cottage, nicely appointed. A bit far from amenities, but ideal for a quite break. WiFi signal good. Mobile signal not so good. Not really a criticism, but it's worth knowing. Unfortunately, the local pub/restaurant was a walk on a footpath across some fields. Not ideal when you have your glad-rags on!

    A lovely relaxing place to stay and a very accommodating, friendly yet non-intrusive owner. Comfortable beds, well-equipped kitchen and clean bathrooms. Sitting room slightly dusty but in fairness, log burner creates dust. Plenty of piping hot water to clean off after a days walking. Sofas although lovely to look at and comfortable enough with plenty of cushions to lounge on could not just be sat on. Could have done with a vacuum cleaner to keep the dog hairs down. Our small white-haired and moulting dog meant everywhere covered in hairs very quickly. Truly lovely and comfortable place to stay for a week. Log burner fantastic. Views stunning.
