This property was just like home from home. All equipment required for a relaxing stay. Onwers who live next door are very friendly and helpful
Fresh eggs from hens roaming the garden.
Property very isolated but the comfort and peacefulness more than made up for this.
If you want a holiday away from it all with fine views but with all the mod cons you would not be dissapointed if you stayed here.
Thank you to the owners for making us feel so welcome

Lovely well equipped, very comfortably furnished cottage with beautiful setting and lovely views as well as the most delightful hosts.
Host family children played for ours with ours.
Only slight downside for us, was that is was a bit more cut off than we would like - with a 25 mins car journey just to reach the main road, and start to go anywhere, which limited our opportunities to make the most of the sightseeing in the area.
comfortable cottage in picturesque location.

We had no problems with booking or route planning, cottage was spotlessly clean, owners left us some special treats which was a nice touch. attractive location. We enjoyed fishing and pony trekking and sight seeing,one minor drawback was long drive down single track road, but would not stop us from going back again
