Coming from a large city, this place was a truly the breath of fresh air that we had been looking for. We loved everything about this place and we're so taken aback by the setting and scenery of this cottage we were blown away! Each night i was able to stand in the back yard and watch the sun going down over the farmland which was one of the highlights of our trip. The cottage itself has been refurbished in a lovely modern country style and was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The log fire place was mother highlight! Our host, Helena, was in hand to great us upon arrival and had even baked us some home made welcome cookies! Z
If you are looking for a quiet, well managed rural retreat to experience the true country lifestyle then this is the place for you. Just not the dates when we plan to return, which we definitely will do!
Great to be back in Helena and Phil's lovely cottage in the middle of fields with lots of wildlife and quiet :-) We saw hares, roe deer and a thrush nesting just outside the bathroom window. It had everything we needed, lovely and warm, comfy beds with plenty of walks you can do straight from the door. And if we didn't feel like cooking there's a fab cafe at Smeaton 5 mins walk away.
Best place to de-stress from city life.
What a fantastic location and lovely cottage.
It's cosy and in excellent condition .
Was a perfect week for me to unwind enjoy the wild life and beaches nearby . Close to Smeaton tea roomsk, Hailes Castle , Preston Mill, sea life centre and beautiful country side .
