“The perfect cottage in the perfect location.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

The cottage is one of the best we have stayed in. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable with a definite wow factor. Wonderful quiet location with walks from the door and a garden which was visited daily by red squirrels. We will definitely be back.

Liked best: The beauty of the cottage.
Liked least: The fact that you have to clean it yourself when you leave. With small, impatient children, this can be a bit difficult.

Glad you (and Archie!) had a great time. Aren't the red squirrels just the most beautiful creatures ever? I have been lucky enough to see woodpeckers and deer recently too! I find it hard to leave after doing a change over - hence the constant cleaning and painting, anything to keep me there really, so its always really good when people notice! Thanks!

Glad you had a really lovely time and enjoyed our abundant wildlife. You are right the area does have a lot of history! Plenty of old mines and quarries to explore with torches
