  • Justine

    Warm, clean and had everything provided way beyond expectations. Good communication with the owner who settled us in on arrival. Would definitely recommend this place and the area is very pretty and enjoyed eating locally.

    Colin met us when we arrived and told us everything we needed to know about the accommodation. It is the special touches that were in the cottage a pint of milk in the fridge, a bottle of wine and a few munches on the side. There were tablets for the dishwasher, washing up liquid and tea towels all so appreciated. Lots of information on places to visit and how to use the television and even Netflix. They have thought of everything to make your stay the best. It is a comfortable and beautifully kept cottage. Looking forward to returning another time.

    The owner was amazing and everything you need was there including a lovely welcome pack. The situation was private, remote, and peaceful but close to shops and facilities. We had an amazing week with wonderful weather. Plenty of places to visit followed by a lovely relaxing evening back at the property. Couldn't recommend any more highly. Thank you.
