    Amazing amazing Amazing! Was blown away by how beautiful this cottage is. So many little nice touches in every room to make it unique, homely, cosy and stunning. The hot tub was a dream (check the setting is on max temp as soon as you arrive). Log burner amazing. Bed super comfy. Surroundings idyllic. Not a bad word to say about this gem.

    I would highly recommend this cottage. Four ladies (family members) spent a long weekend here. The cottage is very clean and comfortable with everything you will need. I recommend using the hot tub which is a lovely added item. Although it was January once in the hit tub you could have been anywhere. The cottage is in a great location and was very peaceful. I would also recommend you have a meal at Thomas Wright House as the foid is amazing. This cottage offers comfort at a great price. Will definitely return. The owners were very welcoming and friendly.

    Amazing place. Really lovely and cosy cottage. The hosts were fab and left a welcome pack which was really thoughtful. Quiet and pretty location. Lovely comfy beds. The place was spotless. The hot tub is lovely and private and the log burner was a real luxury. I would highly recommend and will definitely be going back. Thank you so much.

    First time we've stayed in a cottage but definitely hit the jackpot with this one we wanted cosy, romantic and low maintenance and this is exactly what we got. Bit of a drive out to where we wanted to visit but the accommodation made up for it. Chilled evening in the hottub but cosying up infront of the real log fire with a takeaway perfect. Also to add most comfiest bed ever!!

    Told on morning of trip been double booked put us up in a room with hot tub first night then moved to a shared room with sofa bed second night, not ideal. The staff and manager did look after us with food and drink though and couldn't do enough for us they were all excellent
