“Delightful, comfortable and homely cottage”
Reviewed 23 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed here for four nights with our Labrador. The cottage was clean and tidy on arrival and Melanie was there to welcome us. We were fortunate that the weather was dry and mainly sunny but the evenings were a bit chilly so the wood burner was put to good use. The cottage was very cosy, especially with the wood burner going. We ate at the local pub - there was a great choice on the menu and they catered for vegetarians - it was nice to have more than one item to choose from on the menu! It was also a dog-friendly pub. Will definitely come back and stay for longer.

Reviewed 29 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Brilliant cottage, extremely clean and very tidy, very friendly, cosy and relaxed. We have a dachsund dog and it was great to be able to take him with us too. The dvd did not work after the first dvd so we were brought a new one the very next day.
