    Great cottage. Beautiful area with nice small towns to visit when it rains. We enjoyed walking hills and visiting villages. Great break. Would recommend . Owners friendly and helpful.

    Great little cottage - only problem is that it is not good for people with mobility issues. Stairs up to bedrooms and toilet down stairs makes it hard when you have to go up and down several times a day/night. Facilities were great, but would have been nice to have hand soap- most people bring shower gel- shampoo, but travellers expect soap.

    We had a lovely time in this cosy cottage. The owners were very friendly and even bought us a bottle of wine for our Silver Wedding Anniversary. The cottage is dog friendly and was perfect for us, would recommend.

    Very friendly. Bed very comfortable. Location excellent as were local amenities. Good value for money. My only issues were equipment and cleanliness. Bed linen clean and bathroom clean but general cleanliness around internal bins and windows needed attention. Would have like some cleaning equipment other than hoover. Felt the place was a bit tired and needed a thorough clean and update. Enjoyed myself and would stay again definitely, even without the clean and update.
