    Lovely cottage. Very remote, nothing locally except walks and one very nice tea room. Make sure you have everything you need on arrival! A few things could be improved: fix the light above the cooker, it needs decent pots and pans (especially as self catering is fairly essential being so far away from a town), fix the knob on the cooker (very loose so couldn't tell what temp it was and consequently burnt our tea!). Overall we had a lovely stay, there was 11 of us and there was plenty of space. If peace and tranquility is your thing, far from the madding crowd, this is definitely a good choice.

    Needs a more thorough clean as lots of cobwebs around but then it is an old property. Lots of bulbs need replacing, Shame basics not there like tea and coffee, sugar and salt pepper etc also should have soap in each bathroom. However, it was very reasonably priced and warm and mince pies a nice touch. We have a great time as walking was amazing straight from the accommodation
