  • Clean and cosy

    Clean and cosy. Nice continental breakfast makings left for us and we appreciated being allowed to take our dog. We enjoyed the isolation of the property - not far to get there, but we felt like we were miles from anywhere and it was fantastic. We felt totally relaxed. Thank you.

  • The property is a great character property and is very well equiped

    The property is a great character property and is very well equiped. The location is slightly out of the way but well worth the effort to go there. Very peaceful and relaxing. Lovely area to walk around and plenty of local wildlife to observe. Very interesting local history information provided.
