Excellent cottage - would definitely recommend. The owners were there when we arrived and showed us how everything worked which was really helpful. They had even left us a bottle of fizz for NYE. Even in Dec/Jan the cottage was warm and cosy. The kitchen was so well equpped and there were lots of Dvds, books and games for those rainy days.
The location was spectacular, quiet and peaceful - you drove down to the mill - so picturesque and the stream was beautiful. Nearby pubs were plentiful within a 5 mile radius. Read more
