We were very well lokked after from the moment we arrived until we left. The cottage was lovely, ideal for 2 people. Maintained to a very good standard with everything that we needed. The hosts gave us such a lovely welcome pack and superb service.We loved the most informative Welcome Pack with very accurate walk details. The hosts certainly go that extra mile to ensure you have a most enjoyable stay!

Apart from the sofas which we found too low - we are both 70+ - we had every comfort we could hope for. The area was lovely with interesting early morning walks around the village. We found a delightful cafe nearby and enjoyed the trains and slate mines. Everyone we met was friendly and kind. Super
