The property is gorgeous and in an idyllic location surrounded by countryside and wildlife and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be re-booking next year. However the access to the property is by an unmade up bridleway, the first part of this is fairly easy to negotiate however nearer to the property there are many large potholes. Our family have large SUVs but it would be difficult to negotiate in a smaller car especially in wet weather and some would not want to do so. Additionally the stairs in the old part of the cottage are steep with small treads and in the new extension the stairs are open sided with no handrail. The property may therefore not be suitable for those with mobility issues and the new stairs especially could be a safety hazard. Those with young children should be warned that there is no stair gate, fortunately we took one with us.

We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Keepers Cottage and that you liked its beautiful countryside setting. The cottage is set down a long narrow unmade track, as mentioned in the description, but we're sorry if you found some potholes in places and we'll certainly forward your findings for the owners' attention along with your suggestion to provide stair gates. We will also ask our Property Manager to consider adding some photos of the stairs to our website. We do look forward to welcoming you back again next year. Alison, Customer Support

Perfect location, especially with 3 noisy and active grandchildren. Lovely views , 360 degree night sky. local dairy and farm shop a big hit with everyone. The Hare & Hounds looked after our needs brilliantly. Would book again.

Keepers Cottage is an amazing place for a family holiday, plenty of space in the secure grounds for children to play, lots of room to cook and prepare meals for 7. The cottage still felt spacious even when filled to maximum capacity. We didnt want to leave, will definately be booking to re visit in the future, Thank you Keepers Cottage for some amazing memories.
