    Had a fantastic weekend at Tock How View! Wonderful cottage, very well equipped and incredible view from the terrace. We were a grown up family of 5 celebrating our parents 40th wedding anniversary (as a surprise) and felt that the cottage was generously spacious, very comfortable and we are looking forward to going back! Thank You!

    A few minor issues but as we were unable to locate the file with information until the last evening many problems such as heating controls, oven, local amenities etc. would have been solved. Noisy shower and dripping shower not ideal but the property is in a perfect location and is well set out and modern. We had a lovely time and managed to see quite a few local sights.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for posting a review and we are glad that you had a lovely time and enjoyed the cottage and local area. We are sorry that you could not find the file which contains information about the oven, local amenities etc. We send out a letter, via our agents, to each guest in advance of their stay to let them know about the whereabouts of this information as well as directions and access information. We apologise if you did not receive this information and hope that you choose to stay with us again in the future.
