This cottage is in a beautiful location, a few minutes walk down a quiet lane and you are straight onto the moors with lovely views from the front door. Comfortable bed and nice shower, a perfect size for two people. There is no direct outside enclosed space but we managed perfectly well with the lane and small verge opposite, and an extendable dog lead. The owner also provides access to their own garden if required. I particularly liked the additional half stable door on the outside of the main door with a slide bolt. It meant we could easily transfer items to and from the car/cottage by handing them over the locked half door, meaning my dog was safe at all times. Highly recommended - we would definitely like to visit again when the opportunity presents itself. The owner was friendly and accommodating at all times.

Lovely comfortable cottage in a beautiful wild valley. Kind welcoming owners and very well organised for managing the various gadgets in the house. We had a very good week and achieved great deal of exploration despite being in our late 80’s.
