Lovely cosy cottage. Has everything you could possibly want. The welcome basket was also a lovely addition.

Reviewed by Richard, 17th May 2019

The cottage is very well located, to provide us with a lovely welcome pack was very thoughtful too. The accommodation was spotless. Good access to some lovely dog walks, we even had a super woodland walk literally across the road. Very well placed to travel all around the area. We had a lovely time exploring - nearly as much as our dog.

A beautiful cottage that has all the home comforts and more. Perfect for setting out on countryside rambles. We loved our time there, and although a small garden it was contained so our German Shepherd could relax after long walks in the woodlands. Attention to detail and comfort was just perfect.

We will continue our search for the perfect dog walking holiday....great cottage but the dog walks were alive with sheep and cows and dogs on a short lead is not much fun.

Lovely cottage all on one level. Some steep steps up to the cottage though. Car park was challenging as the space is small. Lovely welcoming place to stay and explore the area. The welcome goodies were a nice touch too. Local pub was welcoming and nice menu.

We had a lovely stay at the cottage (2 adults, 14yo & 2 dogs) Owner left us a lovely lot of goodies on arrival which was unexpected and really welcome. The cottage is clean, warm and comfortable with everything you could need - we especially enjoyed having the open fire in the evening which we don't have at home. There's lots to explore in the areaRead more. The WiFi was good speed and there was everything you need for a really relaxing holiday. We would definitely recommend and stay again - Thank You Hide

Perfect cosy little hideaway. Spotlessly clean and lovely welcome pack with high quality products. The pub over the road has just been refurbed and we enjoyed a good quality pair of ribeye steaks and bottle of red. Corinne, our host was charming, checking everything was to our liking.

The location of the cottage is great for exploring the local area. The items the owner leaves as a welcome pack are really appreciated and a nice touch.
