We wanted a rural retreat for Christmas/New Year break and we certainly got it.
A cottage with a decor to a very high standard that had no Wi-Fi or phone signal, pub within walking distance, yet only a 10 minute drive to the coast or Tesco absolutely perfect.
Some lovely walks around this area to and a nice view from the back of the cottage. i could go on and on but that would ruin it for you. so go one book it and see for yourself what a gem this is, we will certainly be returning
Brimstone cottage is stunning. It is just as amazing in real life as it is on the pictures. Every detail has been thought through and I have stolen ideas for my own home!
We stayed as a family of four, two adults, a child and a baby. We brought our own travel cot but used the high chair provided which was really handy. The bedrooms are luxurious. The beds are extremely comfortable and the bed linen is of a good quality. The towels were soft and fluffy and the bathroom was lovely.
The downstairs of the property was compact but had everything we needed. The grounds are beautiful and we enjoyed feeding the swans.
We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage and had already booked to return before we arrived home! If I were to be really (really) picky there are two negatives. 1. The lack of phone signal or wifi can make it difficult to plan what you are going to do or to order a takeaway as we discovered! 2. The blinds, whilst pretty, do not stop any light from coming in and as we stayed in summer both children were wide awake at 5am. If like is you are travelling with little ones you might want to bring a stick on black out blind.
We would absolutely return and recommend this to anyone looking to explore the area.
We had a wonderful weekend at Brimstone Cottage - the beautiful cottage has been immaculately decorated with all the creature comforts you could need in a home from home. The kitchen and living areas are small but perfectly formed, as are the bedrooms which both have incredibly comfortable mattresses for a wonderful nights sleep. The view at the back of the cottage is the pièce de résistance - such a pretty and peaceful lake that frames the sunset view from the patio perfectly. We'll definitely be back!
