Probably the best equipped and one of the most comfortable cottages we have stayed in, in an excellent location to explore the area; lots of walking and pubs! The garden is private (although not enclosed if this is a problem for your dog) and offers stunning views for miles. Yummy shortbread and milk/tea/coffee to welcome us. Thank you!

Great holiday here. Lovely, well equipped, rural holiday cottage. Lots of pubs/restaurant/shops near but a car is required. Owners were really friendly and we all had a great stay.
