On arrival, made very welcome by owners. Nice cottage. Beautiful location. Lambs in a pen opposite so sweet. Our daughter bottle fed them and helped out with some chores too. She loved it. Cottage sleeps 4 adults with ease. Sofa bed or camp bed for kids. Kitchen small but ideal for preparing meals as everything available. Loved it.
Lambs, sheep, chickens, baby ducks all great to watch.
Walks from the door to local beautiful areas. Wow!! So lucky.
Real fire was a bonus. Nice touch with the starter pack. Even chilly in June, so it was made use of. Extra wood available for purchase.
Thank you ever so much to the Bacons for a great holiday. We will I am sure be back to chill again.

Short Break in February

A warm welcome met us on arrival with fresh eggs in the kitchen and tea and coffee available. The fireplace was well stocked and we couldn't wait to light a real fire. Our small Jack Russell was curious about the chickens but did not see them as food! With walks from the doorstep we had no trouble finding plenty to do. There was even a recently bought DVD of 'Skyfall' which we enjoyed one evening. Nearby village of Hartington is a must visit and the local pub had a roaring fire and welcomed dogs! Although it was a very cold week with the purchase of extra thermals the weather didn't spoil our break. It was a fabulous little cottage with all the necessities. We will be revisiting again soon.
peace and quiet
