Lovely "get away from it all" cottage. Great for relaxing and walking the dog. Very well equipped and nicely furnished.Mr A Cox - 17th August 2017
The cottage has been fab - the lay out with 3 en suite bedrooms works well for 2 families. Loved seeing the lambs all week and even managed to save a newborn lamb one day! The views are to die for. The enclosed garden was ideal for a 21 month old who wants to play football. Thanks for a great stay.The Green & Thornton Family - 22nd April 2017
