“Excellent home from home!”
Reviewed 31 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We stay in 2 - 3 properties per year, in conjunction with the cottages.com website - and this has to be among the very best!

Right from the moment that we booked, the owner (Ray) was in contact with us. First of all he included important information about the property, and followed up shortly after, with information on the local area. This really helped us plan our activities in advance, and was a nice touch.

Right from the minute that we drew up in the off-road parking area, the overall high standard of cleanliness became apparent.

Once inside, we found all the amenities that we needed for our stay - washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher etc in the huge kitchen, and unpacked our kit in the plentiful storage areas.

Another nice touch, was having bread, milk, cookies and laundry powder (Fairy Non Bio - ideal for Eczema sufferers like myself) left out for our arrival.

The beds were extremely comfortable (although it's worth mentioning that the master bed is a 4'6" double), and the fact that you could hear a pin drop overnight, ensured that we had a decent sleep every night (I'm a very light sleeper).

That said, the quiet and peaceful location, power shower, and extremely comfortable lounge area were 'just the ticket' after a busy day of sightseeing.

We've already booked to go back in June, and would urge any returning renters to contact the owner directly, as he offers a discount of between 10 - 20% off his (already competitive) prices.
