This is a very spacious cottage owned by very friendly farmers. It has a nice enclosed garden which was perfect for the dogs bordered on one side by a stone wall and the other by a fence. It tacks on to a horses field. The view from the bedrooms at the back accross the fields and hills is breathtaking and extremely quiet and peaceful. The Owners far exceeded expectations by supplying many extra's like milk in the fridge on arrival, fresh flowers and a laid out tea tray with biscuits. Supplies of dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid and a woodburner fire laid ready for use. It was extremely clean and comfortable. We enjoyed many an evening after a day exploring relaxing in the large lounge/diner. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a nice restful holiday. We would love to go again. Hopefully sometime soon.
