The cottage was lovely, well equipped with everything we needed, be it cooking, relaxing, cleaning and entertaining (the jenga set was a laugh!). Lovely to have a big patch of grass were are dog could play about. The cottage is lovely and rural which we really liked.

My husband and I stayed 3 nights with our 5 and 9 year old daughters and our 10 year old Labrador. We had a fantastic time - the location was perfect, the cottage was really comfortable and well equipped. It was also great to be right in the middle of a working dairy farm which was particularly good for my youngest daughter who absolutely loved theRead more cows! Great local walks and we really loved The Stagg Inn pub just at the end of the road! I would highly recommend this property. Hide

Lovely place to stay. We took the grandparents and our two young children to fully occupy the cottage. It is a great setting, within a working farm - lots of cows and tractors to keep the kids entertained as they watch them go by. The hosts are extremely friendly and helpful and the pub at the end of the road is nice. All in all, highly recommendedRead more. Hide
