    Superb cottage in tranquil location. Owners extremely pleasant and helpful. Have used your company for 20+ years and How Wood has shot to top of our favourite list. Shhh ! Don't tell anyone or we won't find a vacancy for next year.



    out of 10

    This is a truly glorious cottage in the most stunning setting imaginable. There is a magical quality to the place and it is incredibly peaceful. The best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in and we have been to many. The owner Mel is absolutely lovely.
