  • A group of 8 of us stayed for Christmas week, it was a lovely stay, very well equipped with everything we needed, lots of space and a wonderful setting. I would recommend this cottage to families looking to spend quality time together, can not speak highly enough of the house and surrounding areas for dog walking and beautiful scenery, we will defiantly go back.
