We stayed in "Bramble Cottage" during an unseasonable cold and wet June week, but it was "simply brilliant". The cottage was so well equipped with lots of individual touches (too many to mention) from the "welcome pack" of essentials that we may have forgotten to bring - including milk and delicious new-laid eggs - to a range of bathroom toiletries (and a supply of loo rolls) that you'd only normally get in a hotel.
Our daughter, partner and one-year old grandson (from Sheffield) visited us over the Bank Holiday weekend and we pampered ourselves in the gorgeous hot-tub (albeit in the rain) and made use of the barbeque house - an excellent feature for a typical Englsh summer like this one.
I'm currently trying to arrange a return visit to "Smallshaw Cottages" with other family members to stay in the gorgeous and very spacious Farmhouse that we managed to have a look around - we were very impressed with what we saw of the Farmhouse, and really good value too, even in the high season.
