Wonderfully located property and if you want tranquility and genuine peace and quiet look no further. We visited in November and although unsurprisingly the weather was cold and wet, the constant changes in the scenery was truly wonderful to see.

Beautiful location, set back from the road but still convenient for days out. The views from the cottage are some of the best I have seen, hot tub spot takes full advantage of this. The cottage is attached to the main house and the garden runs the full length of the property, it is secure but if you are taking a dog bear in the mind the resident doRead moregs do visit so if your dog is reactive, this might not be ideal. Cottage is clean and comfortable, Wi-fi is hit and miss, to be expected with location Hide
