Beautiful house surrounded by fantastic scenery.

  • 5 of 5

So impressed by lots about Moss-side cottage. The cottage is so big and we loved the large kitchen, dining , living room area. All the kitchen equipment is of such a high standard and my friends loved the Krups coffee machine in particular. The bedrooms are a great size and two beautiful bathrooms are at either end. Nenah was so helpful when we had a heating problem(we just hadn’t turned on the thermostat) and on hand for any issues. Overall, I would highly recommend Mosside cottage. It is a beautiful house, very spacious and in a great location.

Clean, friendly, amazing home from home

  • 5 of 5

From the beginning my contact with Nenah was fantastic. She was quick to respond and provided ample information ahead of our arrival. Upon arrival it was the little things that I noticed the most. She had visited ahead of our visit and made sure the cottage was toasty warm with a welcome bottle of wine and box of chocolates. The large double bedrooms with comfortable beds were just what we needed after our long journey. We awoke to spectacular scenery and were able to enjoy the spacious kitchen. We wanted for nothing. The pictures do not do this cottage justice. Nenah thank you for a truly memorable vacation.
