A delightful character cottage with sympathetic modern comforts and a superbly equipped kitchen.

The cottage and garden were absolutely beautiful and in lovely surroundings. It had everything we needed, I really can't fault it. It was the nicest cottage we'd ever stayed in. It had all amenities - even Netflix! I would certainly recommend this cottage and a reasonable price too.

A really delightful cottage with a beautiful garden. Great location for local and wider walking. The Drunken Duck is just a one mile stroll along the quiet back lane which was an unexpected bonus.

Reviewed by Paula, 20th July 2019

We spent a very comfortable and relaxing week at Moss Beck, two adults and two children. The cottage is spotless and fully equipped. The beds very comfortable for a good rest after a day cycling the beautiful surroundings.

Reviewed by Christopher, 1st June 2019

This is probably the nicest cottage we have ever found, although I would have been a little scared of the uneven stone stairs if I had had small children. The kitchen was easy to use/and sit and dream in as it was spacious and light and airy. The open fire was wonderful for the same purpose!

Reviewed by John, 3rd November 2018

A very cosy cottage with a home-from-home feel. Very clean and excellently stocked.
