When we arrived we were greater with a perfect welcome from the hosts..... Which was better than the 'not to perfect' weather!

The cottages are fantastic and a real home from home. We settled in quickly and soon made use of the facilities like the play area for the dogs, and the pool room for the humans

Jackie and Lenny couldn't be more helpful and were always there if you needed... And there knowledge of the local area was put to great use......

We were so impressed with the quality of the cottages and helpfulness of the owners we immediately booked again for September 2017.......

Absolutely fantastic cottages, a home from home, with very friendly owners in Jacqui and her hubby, willing to accommodate our 3 dogs as we can struggle to get places willing to take them. Beautiful area, and away from busy roads. Many amenities within the cottages, which saves taking a lot of extras with you.

Can't wait to get back next September, and meet up with our friends again x

Thanks very much for renting us your cottages!

Lovely views, plenty outside space and very clean.

  • 5 of 5

Too much to sum up in one sentence but we had a great time. The views were incredible and it was really quiet and peaceful. We made full use of the facilities which included an indoor swimming pool, pool table and plenty of other things to keep both adults and children happy. The town was approximately a mile away which was an enjoyable, scenic walk with plenty of shops and restaurants. The owners were brilliant and very friendly, we would go back tomorrow if we could.
