    Fortunately we drive a 4x4, gaining access to the cottage would otherwise had been very difficult. The access road is very rutted. Externally it looks ‘picture book’, however, the interior is tired and the furnishings are of poor quality. The rooms are all of a good size but need some TLC. We were only there for three days and it was ideally located for us. The standards let down a potentially fabulous cottage. If you are not too choosy and have an appropriate vehicle... book it.

    Second stay at Tows Bank cottage very warm and clean, Wi-fi extremely slow, Parking not allowed at front gate by farmer, The small double bed is very uncomfortable as I said on my previous stay, It really needs changing before I would stay again, Lovely location, No blind at kitchen or bathroom windows for privacy?

    The cottage was lovely, but I had to go in and Hoover and polish, empty the fire and rinse the bath out! (The bath water was a very yellow colour) their was long dark hair in the master bedroom, none of my family are dark, so wasn't from us! I dont except to pay hundreds for a holiday to then go in and have to clean up on the first day! The bed in the master bedroom was very unfomy! The slats are not attach underneath so fall through constantly, i tryed to put them back on but cut my finger in the process. Their was a broken table in the living room, which was just balancing with a broken leg, lucky my husband noticed as it was sharp, the blankets in the living room absoulty stunk of dogs, I had to wash them all befor my children touched them. The blind that I assume was ment to be up in the kitchen was just rolled up and balancing over the top of the fire place in the kitchen leaving the cord just hanging down, the other blinds just had their cords hanging down aswell (very dangerous when you have children!) Theirs very little cupboard space and the kitchen table was very wobblerly (my husband had to tighten it all up) the track leading down to the cottage is very uneven and bumpy, please go very slowly or you may damage your car. On a plus side the views are beautiful and the farmer and the chickens are very friendly. Lots of nice walks near by.

    This is the best cottage we have stayed in. Inside it is spacious and cosy and very clean and comfortable. The Bedding was immaculate and the location is beautiful. If you like star gazing it is the ideal location for you, as it gets very dark at night and you can see everything in the nights sky. If you have dogs and you like long walks there are plenty of walks for you to enjoy. The only negative point I would mention is the chickens that are literally everywhere. While I love the countryside and seeing chickens that are free to roam around on their own, they were a bit of a nuisance. We spent the whole 2 weeks trying to stop our dog from going for them as they kept coming in the garden. I have not reflected this in the scores as this is not the fault of the owners and it really is a beautiful place. Just be aware that it’s situated on a working farm so if your dog likes to chase livestock or is not impeccably behaved then it could be an issue. Overall though it’s a 10 from us. We are already planning on returning very soon.

    The cottage is wonderful very rural with lovely views across the valley very quiet and at night very dark which if you live in a town is rare. Inside is comfortable but do bring slippers as the stone kitchen floor in bare or stocking feet isn't too good. We over packed as there is so much provided by the owners or by renters like sugar tea all you need for washing up cleaning etc. The chickens are friendly and even see a couple of pheasants, the only person you see is the farmer feeding the chickens. The cottage is warm and comfortable when the fires are lit its so homely. We were there during storm Ali so decided to play board games in the kitchen with the fire on it was very relaxing and watching the storm outside even the chickens hit in the barn or by the wall. Just a warning make sure you have all your shopping or its another 5 miles back to the shops. The WiFi seemed pretty useless but if you have mobile data you get a good signal in the cottage. The biggest downside is that at the end of the holiday you have to leave.
