Absolutely loved it here, the Pipistrelle is perfect and has everything you need, the scenery around the area is gorgeous as is the setting for Pipistrelle, lovely walks with the dog who also loved the field and stream that belongs to property. There are plenty of dog friendly walks not far from the property some set in beautiful forests with waterfalls that are really stunning. Local pubs not far away are also really worth a visit, ask the owners regarding which pubs are best to visit, who by the way are lovely and welcoming. I couldn't find anything I didn't like regarding this holiday.

Mrs B,

The cottage was lovely and sparkly clean. The location is great to relax and enjoy the nature. Hosts were amazing! Strongly recommended.

Miss M,

Pipistrelle is a lovely place to stay. The property had everything we needed. The owners are very friendly and helpful and the location was great. The meadow and stream was an added bonus, loved by our 2 dogs.

Mrs D,
