With exposed stonework and beams, the cottage retains its original character, whilst providing all essential modern comforts and conveniences.

Splash is ideally placed for walking, cycling, pony trekking and other moorland activities, and comes with a concierge service supplying local information, and organisation of a wide range of activities such as farm visits, llama walks, heritage sites, golf, abseiling and hot air ballooning.
