"Absolutely gorgeous place"

We booked this trip at the last minute. Bob and his family were so friendly and their hospitality was first class. The cottage was spotless and could not fault it in any way. We all loved the coal/log fire which made the break even more relaxing. Bedrooms were beautiful and very comfortable, haven't slept so well in ages. Very dog friendly, with an enclosed garden. The surrounding forests and villages are definitely worth a visit. Will be definitely be going back.
