  • 10/10 for location

    10/10 for location. Simply beautiful. Cottage is well looked after and very tidy. Adequate heating for winter stay. Spa pool was a nice bonus. I don't think that was mentioned on the book a bach listing. Farm manager John is lovely and helpful. Nice walking on private roads to take in the views. Horse riding lessons for the kids were fantastic. Will definitely consider visiting again. Cottage not luxurious but comfortable and had pretty much everything we needed.
