Please read pricing info below, do not use the base rated quoted.
Our prices vary considerably throughout the year from week to week and it is impossible to list them all, in four cottages, our base rate is £100 a day to £200 peak, please ask for a quote. We are generally around £890 for a peak week and £390 for off peak. School holidays are generally over £500 per period. Our changeover days are Friday and Monday only. Weekends are sold by Fri, Sat and Sun only, we can not discount for a Sunday departure. Midweek is generally cheaper, quiet, with no minimum stay and from £129. We advertise on many sites but do try to keep the calendar up to date, this can be difficult at times so please check first. I always try to respond withing a few hours. Because we cannot list all prices, flipkey will always use the base rate to quote, this is incorrect and can be a long way out at peak times, this is due to the inflexibility of their system and is very misleading. Please contact us for a quote stating the correct number of guests, average age and if you intend to bring pets. We will normally get back to you within a few hours with a price.

“A fantastic family holiday with top class accommodation”
Left on 05/07/2014 for a stay in May 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed May 7, 2014Stayed May 2013
A fantastic family holiday location set in a beautiful part of the country.
We have spent 4 holidays here over the last 5 years or so and have always been warmly welcomed by the owners Tony and Viv who are more than happy to help out.
There are Local shops, pubs and takeaways all near by and are all very friendly. There is plenty to do out and about with walks or the nearby villages with the trains and its not too far to have a drive up to the north east coast line for a day trip.
All the cottages are up to a very high standard with everything you could need provided for an enjoyable stay, they are very clean and tidy.
The pool and jacuzzi are also a nice addition and the areas are always very clean and tidy.
All in all its a great base for exploring around and about or great for sitting in the sun looking at the great views down and over the hills.
