Over in the contemporary open-plan kitchen/diner, there is everything here to make the cottage a real home from home, including a Neff electric oven, gas hob, fridge with ice compartment, microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer. Tuck into a homecooked dinner around the dining table, which easily seats four – there is also an iPod dock which you can play your favourite music on.

The first bedroom is reached from the lounge, and features twin beds, which can be requested to be made into a super-king-size bed at the time of booking, and great views out to the hills. The second bedroom enjoys a four-poster double bed. Both bedrooms also have a TV with Freesat and an iPod dock, great for early nights or lazy breakfasts in bed.

Robin Hood Cottage is absolutely delightful and very well equipped. It has a stunning garden and is right next door to a pub - always an added bonus especially when they are very friendly, serve delicious meals and the pooch is welcome too. Walking routes direct from the cottage - just pop out the gate at the end of the garden.
