Miss Jane D,

Very well equipped cottage. Large paddock for dogs to run around. Lovely hot tub and beautiful grounds.

Mrs Karen W,

Great holiday property! We had a blast. Very suitable for a 6-person family (4 kids; all under 11) and it's also suitable for families with older children/teenagers. Perfect place to have as a home base for walks, sightseeing, etc., but also for just staying at home. Very relaxing.

Kees De J,

Thank you for a lovely stay. Perfect getaway - dog loved it too!

Previous Customer,

What a fantastic weekend with such beautiful surroundings. The property was of an exceptional condition and it honestly couldn’t have been better. Thank you so much.

Miss Nicola C,

Very pieceful location. Was greated by the owner, Daphne, on arrival who was very friendly. Lovely clean cottage. Dog friendly, with a large fenced paddock for our dogs to run around without fear of losing them. Hot tub was enjoyable in the evenings. All local areas are lovely to walk around and most pubs are dog friendly. Couldn’t have asked for any more.
