Guestbook comments from the owner

"Lovely property and grounds. It is rather remote and you have to use the car to get anywhere so would be suitable for walkers or those that don't mind driving everywhere. Very pleasant stay and very well equipped."

K Phillips



"The booking process was simple and the property was exactly as described on the web site. Excellent quality location and very well appointed cottage. We wanted for nothing (save better weather!) and had a lovely holiday!! Many thanks"

John Dean



"We had a blissful holiday thanks to the lovely weather, gorgeous scenery and excellent places to eat! We previously used helpful holidays as students - over 20 years later, with kids and grandma in tow, we had an equally memorable holiday. Hope to use you again - without the 20 year gap!"
