A really beautiful cottage with everything you need for a relaxing break. Lovely walks straight from the cottage. Only downside was the restricted height in the two top floor bedrooms but the rest of the cottage more than made up for it.

My second visit to this cottage. The dog loved it, views are amazing. Very well equipped cottage and I look forward to visiting again in the future. Access to the lake was a welcome bonus. And great news that the internet connection has been upgraded since our first visit, we got 26mb down and 1mb up which is fine for streaming video!

This was truly a slice of heaven on Earth. The peacefulness of its location will be unforgettable; a garden full of ripe fruit and just watching the stock and wildlife was pure joy. Everyone we met was friendly and helpful - the farmers and estate people as well as at the Local Shop. We also enjoyed the welcome cake and flowers.
