Orchard View Cottage
Beautiful location, delightful cottage. Very clean and well equipped.
Steve could not have been more helpful with his recommendations, superb efficiency and charming manner.
A real gem of a place!
Charming location and hospitable stay
Well equipped to a good standard. All rooms and spaces are well proportioned. Plenty of outside space to sit and relax, or dine. Great internet access. Fabulous views. Steve and Debbie were charming and welcoming hosts. We all had an enjoyable stay and would happily go back.
Fantastic peaceful hideaway in the country
The reality was as good as the photos - and it's a great base for looking at the local towns and countryside
Beautiful home from home.. everything you would need and more. Stunning scenery. Dogs loved it. Cosy and warm. We made good use of the log burner.
Amazing despite the rain
Fantastic is all that is needed. The property is wonderful and Stephen is more than welcoming. Inside, everything is clean and it has a lovely cozy feeling, which is strange since actually the property is quite spacious.
Surrounding the property is lovely green fields, so, if you get some bad weather then you can just relax. Also, for children, there is many animals around to look at and in the surrounding areas there are lots of activities for all types of weather.
Returning for a holiday to the UK, I was looking forward to a pint at the local pub, but the hours are quite irregular. This means that there is not much within walking distance for food or drink. However, there is a town around 5 miles away which will cater to most peoples' needs.
Overall, it was a lovely experience, especially for my children who were seeing farm animals for the first time.
Been going now for 15 Years. I think that says it all!!!!
Rabbie, Susie, Toby and Tarn our Cocker Spaniels.
