Everything about our holiday was amazing from the fresh milk and Jam, to the hot tub and our cuddles with the owners dog Titch! It was so homely and clean, and had everything we could have needed and more. Will be going back again!

Perfect accommodation for a short break. The location was absolutely breath taking and so peaceful. The kitchenette was more equipped than I realised! Only thing I would say is that walking to the local pub and amenities is not advisable as the lane is quite treacherous. We had the best weekend and would stay again.
