The cottage is absolutely beautiful and a dream to stay in. What excellent builders the Victorians were. It has everything inside you could wish for, was very comfortable and well thought out. The location was superb and the walks from the cottage itself were excellent - we had one tired dog coming home!

Excellent cottage, well equiped very roomy, warm and comfortable. Perfect spot for getting to walks around the valley and right on the edge of a Dark Sky conservation area. Plenty of owner support if needed and a super holiday for both dog and owner.

The "Dog House" to be used for wet coats, dog towels was very cold so nothing dried - we appreciate the sentiment of using this room for these purposes but not practical in November.

Absolutely beautiful cottage and safe secure garden for the dogs who enjoyed it as much as us. Perfect. My only criticism is that I did not own it.
