    We had an absolutely lovely long weekend away at the old hat factory! It is so peaceful and relaxing. The views are incredible especially watching the sun set while in the hot tub! Would return for sure!

    Beautifully restored and decorated and had all the kitchen equipment required. However, we were very disappointed after booking a detached property with private hot tub that there was an open garden shared with the owners house. This was not what we expected, not private at all. I think there should be a fence or some screen put up between the properties which I would then class as private.

    Had a lovely stay, lovely view from the bath and hot tub. Lovely and quiet and enjoyed watching the cows and sheep from the windows. Would recommend visiting the ice cream place nearby! Owners were lovely and happy to help.

    The owners were friendly and welcoming, they did not bother us the whole time but popped over to help us out with getting the fire going. The hot tub was peaceful and private with nice views. The bed was comfy. I can't fault the house.

    My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights and it just wasn’t long enough, absolutely superb little cottage with everything we needed. Unlimited use of the hot tub was incredible, the owners never bothered us once they just left us to it but we knew they’d be there if we needed anything. Everything was neat and tidy, lovely and clean with plenty of tips of places to go in a folder in the cottage. Could not recommend it enough, we will definitely be going back!

    We had the best week here. We purposely chose somewhere in the middle of nowhere, so although the local amenities are fine you do have to drive to them. Don’t let this put you off because we got stocked up, kept the fire going all week, got in the hot tub and totally switched off from life. The snow started to fall the day after we arrived and it was just perfect. Would absolutely recommend. The kind hosts provided everything you would need inside the cottage including kitchen pots and pans, salt and pepper, tea towels, tea and coffee, even milk! There were logs available, towels, blankets etc etc. I think the gigantic bed was the best thing for me. Never slept so well in my life!

    This holiday cottage is AMAZING. We stayed here for 4 nights over New Year and loved every moment. The walks nearby are stunning and the cottage itself is a Gem. Owners were very friendly and helpful. The hot tub with the views was the icing on the cake.
