    Beautifully appointed and situated cottage, in a private and peaceful location. Convenient for exploring the surrounding countryside, with two great pubs within walking distance. Absolutely spotlessly clean.



    out of 10

    Lovely cottage in a lovely quiet location. Certainly a place to leave the stresses of every day life behind! The Welcome pack was a kind thought and nice surprise. This is a cosy cottage with delightful views across Arlington Reservoir. The lounge and main bedroom are however a little pushed for space. The kitchen is adequately equipped but the smoke alarm is too sensitive as even with the extractor going full blast it was impossible to fry bacon without setting it off. A note in the information folder to explain that, apart from glass, all rubbish including recyclables goes in the green bin would have been helpful.

    A delightful cottage beautifully presented. A proper fully enclosed garden. Fantastic location alongside the reservoir with incredible night skies.
