    What a wonderful place and wonderful owner - it was fantastic and just what we needed - fantastic price, we felt like we’d come home - with the dogs it was all made so easy for us and the grounds are so beautiful and natural - can’t say enough - we’ll be back



    out of 10

    The hosts went out of there way to accomodate us and I recommend the experiance at being so far North. The May Castle is a wonderful place to visit as it was the only home that the Queen Mother owned outright herself as sje bought it for £100 in 1952.



    out of 10

    Amazing place, it was a brilliant holliday for us, we stayed 5 days but it was like 5 minutes. The cottage is vintage and beautiful, the surroundings stunning. We enjoyed everything, we visited castles, beaches, we played with the dogs in front of the cottage, my daughter already miss the lovely labrador, Flosey. We definetely reccomend this cottage and we can't wait to return.



    out of 10

    Lovely historic cottage with woodland views set in the grounds of the manor house, the Ivy Wing was larger than expected with sitting room, dining room, kitchen and 3 bedrooms. Area is stunning however public transport is limited.
