Beautiful and very well equipped cottage in an idyllic location - peaceful and private but not miles from anywhere. Surrounded by ducks, chickens, swans, rabbits, birds and various wildlife yet with a private, safe area for any kids/dogs. It really is a lovely place to stay, we loved it. We don't usually go anywhere twice but will make an exception for Wharf Cottage.
Fantastic place to spend our honeymoon.

I would highly recommend this cottage, we loved every minute of it and will certainly book again in the future. It was close enough to local amenities at the same time as being away from it all. The motorway is nearby however we barely noticed it even sat outside. The information given by the owners was all very good and although there was a lot to go through it was all worth knowing. It felt like we were at home whilst there and we didn't want to leave. I can't really say enough to explain how happy we were during our stay.

We received excellent directions and information about the cottage from the owner prior to our holiday. The cottage is very clean and the kitchen was well equipped. The woodburner was so cosy and easy to use. The location is so peaceful and the scenery is gorgeous with the swans on the canal and the pretty patio garden to sit and take in the views. The bed was very comfortable too!! I would not hesitate to reccommend this cottage to family and friends.

great service when booking,very easy online .the cottage is in a great location,very peaceful right on the canal,dogs enjoyed walks from the doorstep.the only downside was the cottage needs decorating and could do with better furniture as the seating is quite uncomfortable after a few hours reading.
Beautiful, tranquil location

A beautiful spot.Although only minutes from the motorway making access to the lakes easy, the cottage is situated far enough from the roads so that once there you feel that you are in the heart of the countryside. The owner leaves plenty of information and the cottage itself is very homely and comfortable.We tried to book it again for later in the year, but it was unavailable - so book early to avoid disappointment!
Good location for mountains,lakes and coast

the cottage was excellent, ideal for a large family with 2 dogs.
the cottage was very comfortable with a lovely woodburner in the livimg room. the kitchen was nice size for all the family to sit at the table for breakfast or meals.
Set right on the canal side,we saw lots of wild life from the swan's duck's rabbit's to the local builder's chicken's duck's and geese. lovely fresh eggs every morning !!.
only 5mins away from the local pubs if you decide to eat out. The local butcher's is definatly worth a visit too. all in all excellent.
we will definatley be back.
