2017 – ‘Jamie (Booking.com) “Beautiful cottage, two bedrooms with double beds both rooms have a sink, two bathrooms with showers, double sofa bed in the lounge/Kitchen, usual kitchen appliances plus a washer, drier and dishwasher!! Coal fire (which was amazing on a cold rainy evening), the land lady was lovely and very accommodating. We will certainly consider staying here in the future should we be fortunate enough to visit the area again.”
