What a fantastic cottage, amazing location and helpful friendly owners.
I am working in the area and couldn’t take time off of work so we needed somewhere for my family (and dog) to stay so that we could be together for some of the Easter break. It’s always a bit of a punt when you choose somewhere, especially somewhere dog friendly but the moment I arrived I knew we were on to a winner. The main points are listed below.
• Gorgeous cottage with 3 bedrooms and loads of internal space in a quiet and picturesque rural setting.
• Great wifi
• Fantastic country kitchen with an old range cooker
• Wood burning stove for the chilly nights
• Tv’s in every bedroom and living room
• Great heating system that gets the whole place toasty in minutes.
• Outside seating and barbeque area.
• Completely dog and kid friendly
• Helpful owners with great local knowledge.
• Short walking distance to a train station and local pub/restaurant – literally no need for a car once you get there.
Once inside I had the pleasant surprise of a personal note from the owners written on a chalkboard to supplement the helpful text that I’d already been sent. The surprises didn’t end there as I was soon to discover some fresh eggs from the farm and some basic supplies had also been gifted. I hesitate to write that because such a gift is so far above and beyond what is necessary or expected and I wouldn’t want the owners to feel they had to do this for everybody however, suffice to say I was very grateful (my little hoard eat a lot of eggs) and it was only the beginning of a very memorable stay.
The whole place just oozes character but one look at the kitchen and I knew I’d be spending some time in there, the big old oil-fired range was an intimidating challenge that I gladly accepted. Once this beast is up to temperature it holds its heat forever so you find yourself cooking on it even an hour after it’s been switched off, we became quite friendly, me and that range, I’m sure I’ll be reminiscing about it for some time.
I will absolutely be staying here again and I’d recommend it to anybody. In particular the owners are especially helpful and friendly even accommodating me when I accidentally booked a night less than I needed!
In fact I need to go back because I had to leave before my kids wrote in the guest book and I can only imagine the things they have put there!
