  • We guarantee you the best price

    Our cottages are professionally managed by our partners and payments are taken by them, but rest assured, by booking via Snaptrip you'll pay the lowest possible price for your trip.

    We never charge you more than you would pay booking directly on the partner's site and if you become a Snaptrip member you can save even more. If you find a property priced lower anywhere else on the internet (we’d be amazed if you do), simply email us at marketing@snaptrip.com and we'll refund you the difference.

    "Good location, warm and comfortable. Stayed at Christmas time, Christmas tree nicely decorated. Grand piano and classic guitar available for use which made for some nice musical moments. If I had to be critical some areas of the house were becoming dated and the timer on the oven requires attention. Had no need to go into the garden but the rear patio requires improving before anybody uses it."

    "Great holiday. Convenient to the town and pub."

    "The house was lovely and warm during a very cold week. There was plenty of comfortable seating in the lounge.The only disappointment was the fact the 1 bedroom did not have its own bathroom and necessitated a walk round the landing to access the upstairs bathroom, which we did not find very user friendly and, in fact, did not use.The showers were not very powerful; however, as a group of friends, we appreciated having so many."
