My partner and I stayed at the Devil's Cradle over New Year's Eve and it was just lovely. The perfect balance between feeling welcomed and looked after by Karen but also given privacy to enjoy our break.
The converted farm shop was even more impressive than the photos - as lovely as they are they still don't do this justice. The kitchen is fantastically equipped with a full sized oven, 4 hobs, a microwave, 4 slice toaster, kettle, plenty of plates, dishes, casserole dishes, utensils etc. There is also a washing machine if you are there for longer. We opted for the continental breakfast and were provided with a basket of croissants and bread, a wide selection of cereals, butter, jams, fruit, milk, orange juice, different types of tea, coffee and sugar. It really was excellent.
The cabin itself is beautifully decorated and so homely yet immaculately clean and tidy.
We loved every minute that we spent there and are hoping to return in the summer when the weather is much better. There are some gorgeous walks a short drive away or you can quickly get from the cabin by foot to an amazing view of the surrounding countryside.
We ate at the pub opposite, Bel and the Dragon, on the first night and would recommend it. A bit on the more expensive side but we did treat ourselves so you could eat there for cheaper.
I will be happily recommending this to family and friends.
