"We found the cottage very comfortable and well-appointed, and the owners helpful and generous. It was a good base from which to re-explore the area. The views around were splendid............... there was plenty of good walking around. We didn't want to drive far after the journey there, but plenty of places were within easy reach. We'd recommend the cottage to anyone else who might be looking for accommodation in the area."

"We had a fantastic holiday. Superb views from the cottage and the owners are very kind and helpful. There are so many lovely walks still to do and I would definitely go back. I went with a female friend so I slept on the sofa bed in the lounge (only a double bed in the one bedroom). However, this was extremely comfortable and very quick and easy to put up and put away again.... I particularly liked the aspect and situation of this cottage. 10/10 - very clean, pretty, functional kitchen and had no problems at all........"
