Lovely cottage and ideally placed for a wide variety of riverside and hill walks. An 800 metre early morning / evening dog walking circuit in a field close by was very handy

Pleasant location and ideal for exploring the surrounding countryside. Cottage very private for relaxing outside. Double bed which we found a bit of a squeeze after our kingsize bed at home was a little bugbear but we survived.
