The cottage is in an amazing location but it cant be stressed too strongly that you need a 4 wheel drive car to get there. The cottage owners were extremely helpful and welcoming but never intrusive. Great walks from the cottage and plenty to do in the wider area.

WOW! Points Cottage is the perfect antidote to modern life, we instantly began to unwind the moment we set foot in the door.

The cottage is fully equipped and it was bliss to have the cosy warmth of the Aga & log fire to return to after a bracing walk in the gloriRead moreous countryside that surrounds the cottage.

We had a lovely, relaxing long weekend at Points Cottage. It is a lovely cottage with lots of space and all the amenities that one would need. Carina and her husband were very friendly and helpful, showing us around the cottage and had put out some milk, butter, sugar, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets and cake etc. for us to use. That was realRead morely special and appreciated. The cottage was very homely with a lovely wood burner in the lounge and an aga stove in the kitchen. Hide

We had a really wonderful time and would definitely go back. Great places to visit, scenery amazing - just like Wuthering Heights and expected Heathcliffe to appear any moment. Lots of good places to eat out too. Lots of walks - so we are all fitter including the dog!
