ACCESS: Due to the rural location guests are advised to use a large vehicle or 4x4 if arriving in October and up to the first week in April. The barn has a long farm driveway, which will get muddy in bad weather, so it's best to pack the wellington boots for opening the gate on arrival.

The cottage itself is really lovely, spacious, clean, comfy, I imagine even better in the summer when you can make use of the BBQ and outdoor ping pong. I cannot fault the property at all and the views are amazing, it's so quiet and peaceful I didn't want to leave. The only issue was getting to the property, there is a rather long, dirt, track whicRead moreh was difficult to get through and it is full of sheep so you have to keep getting out of the car to shoo them away. Almost burnt the clutch out! Hide
