I had a lovely, peaceful stay here with my dogs. The cottage was basic but had everything needed to spend a for a cosy few days away - there were lovely country walks all around the cottage or a range of beaches were only 30 minutes away by car.

We stayed during a very cold, wet week but the cottage was cosy and warm, very nice to come back to after a cold, wet and windy trek with the dogs. There were scones, cream and jam as well as bread, eggs and milk, all very welcome until you get to the shops.

Superb area for dogs. The walks by the stream and lakes were delightful! We have 2 GSD's who were in their element. We only left the property twice to buy groceries. We have already booked for next year, to make sure we could secure a cottage before they were booked by someone else.

Excellent. Facilities just as described. Sat Nav to the postcode was spot on. The welcome pack was most welcome after our long drive. The dog walk area complete with woodland, 3 large lakes and a small river seemed larger that the advertised 15 acres and is well maintained. Our neighbours for the week in the 2 adjoining cottages were very friendly.Read more A thoroughly enjoyable week Hide

A lovely cottage, and very nice helpful owners. I left a message to see if they could check why the Wi-Fi was not working, when they had 5 minuets, they were there within the hour, and WI-FI was sorted the next day.
