Truly beautiful location and superb accommodation, only noise in the evening is from Curlews, Geese and Pheasants. Veronica and her husband couldn't be more welcoming and have created an incredible holiday location.

Excellent cottage, boot room entrance ideal, then you walk into the lounge and the kitchen which can only be described as providing the wow factor. Underfloor heating was brilliant. Didn't use the log burner but wood for one use was provided and it would look fantastic. The second shower room and toilet is down stairs. This was locked, unavailable.Read more If you need this make sure you ask for it, we didn't need it so didn't bother. Would definitely recommend and we intend coming back next year. Hide
