A lovely cottage in a nice quiet area, making for very peaceful evenings. The cottage itself was nice, although there were a couple of minor issues (there was a musty smell in the ensuite bathroom upstairs, although no sign of anything that was causing it, and the hot water was approaching scalding) but the living area was spacious with a kitchen boasting the majority of utensils for cooking. The bedrooms are all a good size with the downstairs bedroom large enough to accommodate a travel cot at the foot of the double bet, and a large twin room and master bedrooms on the upper floor. The garden area available was lovely, and the little courtyard at the back of the property was lovely to sit in during the warm July evenings. The owners were always around and were friendly and helpful throughout our stay.

Beautiful barn conversion if not a bit dusty and lots of cobwebs.. but I guess that is expected in an old property.. the kitchen was badly designed but adequate. The stairs were very steep and creaky.. beds weren’t the most comfortable but okay. The hosts Monty and Sue were really lovely and very hospitable. We forgot towels and they provided us with a huge bundle! They were very relaxed about us walking around the farm and checking out the alpacas.. they didn’t bother us at all. You will need to accept there is a 10 minute drive for a shop etc. It is a remote location so we picked things up while out for the day to save another journey later etc.. overall a lovely place but I wouldn’t stay again as too many spiders for my liking!

A few little things needed attention. Nice to have more than the basic number of everything, made loading the dishwasher more sensible , although not the most effective one I have ever used ! Hosts very helpful. Lovely flowers around the cottage and car park. Beds and furniture very comfortable.
