Very comfy cottage with beautiful views from all windows and peaceful. When I went outside once with the dogs, down in the valley was a concert that could be heard quite clearly, but once inside the cottage - peace. Triple glazed so not coldness, very warm without heating. Secure garden for the dogs and treats waiting for them. The owners do a lot Read moreof recycling and leave bins for all types of waste, including dog waste. Would go again. Hide

A well equipped cosy cottage in a stunning location. Friendly relaxed thoughtful owners. The dog bag containing local dog friendly walks was a brilliant addition when planning our walks. After a long journey the homemade flapjack and bread were a welcome treat.
