We enjoyed our time but did feel there are quite a few areas for improvement. The lane to the property is very narrow, lots of pot holes and would be a mission to get to for a lot of people particularly in bad weather. We live rurally so are used to single track lanes but this did prove difficult at times.The property does have single glazing and nRead moreo central heating so there was quite a lot of mould and mildew which needs to be addressed. Lovely garden,well equipped,good Wi-Fi & in a quiet spot. Hide

If you have a 4 by 4 then the access track will not be a problem. You also need to be able to negotiate steep stairs and a downstairs bathroom.

Absolutely beautiful cottage! Cosy, comfy beds, perfect location to get away from the stresses of life. I booked due to its secluded location and privacy to enjoy time with my family.

I had a really nice stay, calm and relaxing. I like the fact that it is far from roads, cars and surrounded by fields. The house is very cosy and functional. I recommend for people who want a break from a busy life.

Lovely garden, quiet location with countryside walks adjacent to the property. It's worthwhile noting that the cottage itself is the left half of the building pictured, so is smaller than the photos appear, however the garden is very big, it's well equipped, and it is a comfortable size for a family of four.

Lovely cottage in a quiet location. Smaller than it looks in the photos so it is cosy but absolutely fine for 5 people although eating at the table in the kitchen was cramped - ideal for 4. The garden is huge and great for sitting and eating outside. Great views across the countryside and situated next to a delightful woodland.
