A really pleasant stay. The cottage was lovely and the rural surroundings so quiet. The cottage was clean, well equipped and plenty of room to enjoy. Off street parking and a lovely warm fire. The kitchen had everything we needed and the beds cosy.

“Anvil Cottage”
Reviewed 30 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We can't wait to stay again. Lovely cottage in a nice part of the country.
Very spacious, with everything you need at hand.
All the beds were comfy and everywhere clean & tidy.
The children loved the goats and sheep, and enjoyed the geese coming out in the morning.

“Lovely rural stay”
Reviewed 27 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Lovely cottage, very spacious and very quiet. Hosts were very accommodating letting the kids feed the animals and also providing wood for the fire when we got a bit cold. Only slight issue was the double bed which was a bit small and not the most comfortable but on the whole a lovely place to stay.

the cottage was truly in a lovely spot and the owners were very good they were not in your face they helped us when needed.the only thing we would say is the mattress on both beds need replacing,and also some of the towels.but if your looking for a out in the country place its truly lovely I would hope to go back again for the peace and quite they offer. and the geese are so lovely they would come up to the bedroom window and have they morning bath under the window it was like in my child hood great
