Stunning location, comfortable cottage (bathroom a little small), great dog walks. Water source from bore hole was not to our liking so we had to buy bottled water. Small enclosed garden was good for letting the dog out.

Reviewed by Esther, 7th June 2019

The right property for anyone who loves peace & quiet and with dogs it's heaven. The owner lets you use grasland next to the property where your dogs can run around. A lot of beautifull walks nearby.

Lovely location and well equipped kitchen. Beds were comfortable too. Quite spacious on the lower level and a pretty garden to use. Downside, no phone signal and we had no Wi-fi. Water from borehole we had issues with and bought in bottled water.

While the views were stunning, they were only viewable from outside the cottage. This is definitely the place to go if youre goal is peace and quiet. No cellphone coverage and WiFi is limited.

Thank you to Rabbit & Penny - What a fantastic find, brilliant location overlooking the countryside, hills and fields. We were fortunate to spot a deer and fox whilst out on an early morning walk with our dog Frankie. Very comfortable cottage with decking overlooking the views made full use of the garden and outdoors, ideal area for a revising finaRead morel year Vet student.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this property. Everything was thought of for our comfort and Mary, Penny and Rabbits welcome was kind, thoughtful but unobtrusive.

Having booked this cottage for a last minute break, we travelled down from Manchester on a Friday evening after finishing work and arrived very late. Despite this, the heating was turned on and everything prepared for our arrival. As soon as we opened the door, the cottage felt lovely and cosy and tea, coffee and were biscuits provided. Much neededRead more after a 5 hour drive! Communication prior to arrival made for a really easy booking and the cottage itself is brilliantly equipped. Fabulous! Hide
