    "We had an amazing stay at the S23515. Just exactly what we needed peace and quiet and lovely evenings by the open fire. I would definitely recommend it and I am sure we will come back."
    Morag – 17 Oct 2018
    "We had a lovely week at the cottage. It was lovely and clean, cosy modern interior and the open fire was great. The information when booking however is not clear about the distance to the farm "close" could be anything really. There is a road running 10ft from the back of the cottage which is used by heavy farm traffic from approximately 8am in October (this may be earlier in spring/summer) There is an electrified fence and fields of cows 10ft or less at points from the cottage. If you have pets or children with you you may find this an issue as there is no enclosed garden space. We had a problem with the water. We had no hot water for the majority of our stay. We contacted the owner who dispatched her husband to fix it on two separate occasions. He advised that he thought the problem had been resolved from the previous week but obviously not. The issue worsened and the water was discoloured and a very bad smell was coming from the kitchen sink area, this unfortunately was not resolved by the time we left. The owner's husband did attempt repairs very quickly after reporting them but the problems obviously need a qualified plumber to resolve. We have made the owner aware of these issues. This review is left without malice and intended only to be informative for any future guests to be aware before booking."

    "Excellent bungalow with everything we required for a great family holiday. Very well presented and spotlessly clean (and easy to keep clean!)"
    Janice – 15 Aug 2018
    "Well equipped cottage. Lovely inside, spacious and perfect location for quietness and privacy, but still local enough to shops for amenities.The only thing was there was no enclosed gardens which isn’t ideal if you have dogs, but it’s was so quiet, our dogs just sat on the grass undisturbed.Would definitely go back . Thanking the owners of the cottage for a perfect few days away : )"
    Sue – 22 Jul 2018
    "We stayed at the bungalow for a week. It was so well equipped, everything had been thought of. Would definitely return and recommend to anyone who is looking to “get away”. Was a fantastic base to explore the area."
