It is easy to see why this cottage is popular for honeymoons. The bedroom is like the poshest room in the best hotel you could imagine. The whole cottage is very well equipped, though a little short on storage space.The owners are extremely friendly, without being intrusive.
The setting high on the side of the Eden Valley is idyllic, and you will see lots of birds and other wildlife from the living room.
From the welcome pack to the bathrobes, it is obviously a cottage that has a lot of love put into it. There was even a 'welcome' card clearly selected to reflect our enthusiasm for butterflies. You feel more like a welcome guest than a customer.

This rental is fantastic -- it's everything the picture shows and more. The view from the windows is gorgeous -- rolling hills for miles. The bed is super comfy, and the amenities are all there...great kitchen, clawfoot tub --the works! There was nothing bad about this place -- the owners are great as well!

Everything about our weekend was just perfect, the wine & biscuits on arrival, milk & eggs in the fridge & wood for the stove.
The cottage was lovely from the four poster bed, with the views over the countryside when sat in the bath.
We would reccommend a walk to High Force & a visit to Tan Hill (highest pub in England)
All in all a perfect weekend getaway!!
