"Fantastic place for a family celebration"
We rented old bridge cottage for a long weekend to celebrate my parents' ruby wedding anniversary. The cottage was absolutely perfect for our stay with plenty of space for the 6 kids and 8 adults. The hot tub was a particular hit with the children! The location of the cottage is superb and within 5 mins drive of moors valley and walking distance into town. I would highly recommend old bridge cottage for family gatherings (or any other occasion).
Glad that you had a great time. Old Bridge Cottage is especially good for family and group gatherings with it's sauna, hot tub, pool, fishing and space.
