Lovely cottage . Dogs truly made welcome alongside us humans . A great relaxing stay in a beautiful , peaceful part of the countryMr K Brown - 6th November 2016
The property was recently converted and is clean fresh and modern with everything we required and more. The owners are delightful and very welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. They have thought of everything you've need for a comfortable stay. Would recommend for dog owners and cyclists too.Mr D Caldwell - 19th September 2016
Loved the property and location. Made to feel very welcome when we arrived. Impressed with the little extras in the cottage and found the laundry room very useful. The meadow was lovely for exercising the dogs and for sitting out in the evening.Mrs C Welch - 27th June 2016
A beautiful converted barn with everything we needed.Mr G Pipe - 5th January 2016
