This was our first attempt at renting a house for the whole family and it was lovely. Even though the weather was a bit damp, the farmhouse was cosy, the aga made heavenly food and the views were amazing. Our hosts were really helpful and we had a really relaxing holiday. Thank-you!

Bringing together my partners' and my children to celebrate an early Christmas for the first time was somewhat of a gamble. Being in the beautiful setting of the snowbound Schoolmaster Pasture cottage with it's spacious yet cosy interior gave a perfect environment for everyone to enjoy each others company and also have their own space. Everyone loved the arga as a central gathering point in the kitchen and the pool table was the finishing touch to ensure the 5 teenage boys had common ground to get to know each other and have fun away from the adults. The owners were attentive to our every need without being invasive and we felt very much at home.The children are asking if we can do it again next year.

This is the second time we have visited School Master Pasture and we had another great weekend. The house is warm and welcoming especially on wild and windy weekends! The location is fantastic for getting away from it all and provides some great walks right on the doorstep. The area is breathtaking, I could not recomend this property highly enough.
