    "Cottage was easy to find and a welcome pack of milk, bread, juice etc was provided. The cottage was well set out and was perfect for our needs. Garden is enclosed and secure with access through patio doors which was perfect for the dog. Plenty of places to walk and weather was lovely. I will definitely be going back"

    "Lovely Host and cottage was a little gem"
    Elizabeth – 25 Feb 2018
    "We had a great time at this cottage, we went in February with our two Airedales and were really pleased that the garden was totally enclosed and safe for our dogs, the cottage was lovely and comfy after days hiking in the forest, and best of all I personally had no phone signal and that was bliss, this cottage is quite remote nearest shop is in the village about 4 miles away so best take as much with you as your able, unless of course you are travelling further out everyday, at night it is totally black and seeing the stars so clearly is amazing, no light pollution what a difference, owners were very nice and live just down the drive and are always about if you need them, they also left us a welcome pack of bread, milk, biscuits, cheese, tea, coffee, sugar and juice a really lovely thing to do, we slept really soundly as there is no noise the silence is beautiful and we left feeling totally refreshed"
