    out of 10

    Really well equipped , everything you could want or need was supplied. Perfect for 2 but would be a bit cramped for 4 . Loved our break x At times the living room was cold as no heating , could do with a fire . That said we would rebook



    out of 10

    Great little cottage if you like to be away from everything except sheep



    out of 10

    The retreat is a very well equipped clean & comfortable cottage however we must agree with previous guests that have stayed there in that it may be nice having netflix but not having a TV license is very limiting to watch normal TV.
