Ann and Colin are superb hosts who can not do enough to help make your stay memberable. The cottages are of an excellent standard with all the facilities and more you would need for comfortable and enjoyable stay, especially the log fire which Colin prepares and lights ready for your return on colder days. Breakfasts are superb! Location is perfect... More

We have just come back from a perfect 3 night stay in Ann's Cottage and as always wish we could have stayed longer. My parents recommended Ann's Cottage & The Old Smithy too us a few years ago and since then we have been going as many times a year as we can. Both cottages are better than 5 star.... More

On cooler evenings Ann has the long fire burning brightly in the grate on your return from a delightful day spent out in the glorious countryside visiting Churches, Castles, tea rooms and just...
