    Fantastic cottage with everything you need and more. Perfect location for long walks with the dogs, plus close to lots of attractions. We would recommend this property for all age groups and will be returning next year.

    The cottage was clean, pleasant and homely. However it was right next to a busy road and had a haulage yard behind it so was extremely noisy. The pathway between cottage and road was very narrow and vehicles often mounted it. No shop but local pubs were friendly, happy to have dogs visit and served good food. The village was close to many places we wanted to visit so made a good base. If the cottage was in a different location I would have been happy with it.

    I don’t really think this is a dog friendly cottage. It’s on a main road with a small pavement so was dangerous to get out the gate to walk to the car, we had to walk in the road. No garden just a small courtyard so no room to exercise. The tv was not as advised with a digital box that had no signal and the free view channels reception was poor. The cottage was well equipped with everything you would need. I didn’t really agree with previous reviews about noisy traffic first thing in the morning that didn’t bother us. Good location for 2 very pleasant pubs within 5 min walk that was dog friendly.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We apologised to these guests during their stay as next doors tree had grown and blocked satellite reception. The dish has now been moved and the tree pruned but this could not be booked in until the following week. Unfortunately even with a TV booster, Freeview channels are limited within the area.

    Lovely cottage, clean, just a shame that the people before us didn't bother to keep an eye on their dog and clean up after it, even though there was snow on the ground because it was covered didn't mean it could be left. This us not the cottage owners fault as I said covered with snow but the dog owner should follow the rule of not exercising dog on the grounds. Area a bit sparce on amenities a choice of 2 pubs that's all, but a 15 min walk to shop or bus/car journey into town.
