  • We stayed for a week at this beautiful cottage, cannot praise it enough. Christine and David were very welcoming and we enjoyed all the goodies that Christine had made, cake, scones, flapjacks and eggs. The cottage has everything you can think of and we cannot wait to go again, we will have to take our 4 year old granddaughter next time as she will love all the chickens and sheep.

  • Just spent an amazing week here with three young kids aged 5 years and under. What can I say... The cottage is truly beautiful. The added extras in the rooms made it easier to settle in with ease. The kids described the best part of the break as feeding the chickens and sheep. A special thanks to Christine, you made it extra special by going that extra mile in taking our boisterous boys on their mini adventures! Their repeated requests were never turned down!! Thank you x

  • Where do I start? Everything about the accommodation and location was perfect, from the minute we arrived until the morning we regrettably had to leave. On arrival we opened the door and the conversion has been done beautifully. The open plan living space was ideal and had everything you needed. We also had the nice surprise of home baked scones with all the trimmings and Mars crispy cakes which went down a treat with our 9 year old! Fresh eggs (from the chickens outside!) made a welcome breakfast for the first few days. Christine and David were perfect hosts and my son loved the free reign of the beautiful garden at the back with the tennis being a particular favourite. The bedrooms were beautifully decorated with excellent en suites available in the twin and the master bedroom. The only disappointment was that we didn't get to use the wood burner as it wasn't cold enough. We may just have to book again in the Autumn to try this out. Perfect location for getting to all the lakes and absolutely picture perfect with the stream and animals making it a truly rural experience. Can't wait to go again.
