An excellent cottage with loads of space that made staying as couples and two families with young children really easy. The bedrooms were all a good size and really comfortable.

I would defRead moreinitely recommend Thornewidger Farmhouse and would book to stay again. Hide

Excellent place for a family or friends reunion. Comfortable, spacious rooms including bedrooms and communal spaces. Fully equipped kitchen with many extra utensils. If a quiet location is required this is the place with lots of outdoor space to lounge and for children to run around.
