Lovely cottage, spotlessly clean. In a pleasant location, with lovely owners. I would highly recommend this property. The charge is excellent for the high quality facilities. Lovely and warm, and very comfortable. The only thing missing were the mountains (we come from Wales). Having said that we had a really good holiday, and we enjoy seeing diffeRead morerent parts of the country every time we go away. Hide

We had a fantastic week at Owls Roost. It was our second visit and won't be our last. Everything you need is available but also the property itself feels sufficiently secluded. The owners are really helpful and friendly.
