I cannot recommend highly enough the GO BELOW - EXTREME ADVENTURE experience.
I booked a private group for 9 close friends as a surprise trip / stag party and it was beyond my expectations. Not only was the experience truly rewarding physical but as a group it pushed you to encourage eachother and overcome any fears and self doubt you think you have, trust me after this you think you can overcome anything.
The Go Below team which were Matt, Pred and Annie were absolutely fantastic, experts at safety, encouragement and passionate about the job as well as having massive pride in the history and environment in, around and surrounding the area which is beyond words stunning.
Everyone who took part said the day was absolutely amazing, overcome personal fears and doubts, learnt some amazing history, laughed throughout the day and just like myself couldn't recommended the Go below experience highly enough.
I organised a trip for myself and 13 friends to stay at the property over new year. Wow! It went far beyond our expectations. There are some gorgeous original features here. The pub was a real highlight, and we were even able to bring our own cask to attach to one of the pumps. The house had plenty of space for us to all sleep, and any minor issues we had were sorted quickly and efficiently. Loved that we could all eat in the same room together. The location was perfect for a drive to the beach, or there are some gorgeous quarry walks on your doorstep. Thank you so much for having us....we will return!
We stayed here in October with family for my mums 60th, (8 adults and 6 children) we were very impressed with the size of the building. We were met at the door by Rachel, she was lovely and very helpful, gave us a tour around, the bedrooms were all adequate for the size of our group, it had a large living room with dining table and log fire, our favourite room was the bar of course also has log fire, I would say be careful around this as one of the adults was passing by and touched it and ended up with a bad burn so maybe putting a guard around this or just be extra careful if you have children, the bar area was great fun with the sound system, this also has karaoke ( I would advise taking some karoke CD's or just music CD's of your choice, although there is a huge variety)!! We also hired a hot tub for the garden which was good fun, the kids loved the garden even though it was cold we all still managed to play a game of rounders (supplied). There is also a small games room which the kids played lots of crafts and games (bit too small for adults but then the adults were happy with the bar and also there is a darts board (best to bring a set of darts) There was a couple of times I had to contact the Owner/Rachel to check on some things but this was never a problem and they were always available, I think Rachel also lives quite close and she said she could be round in minutes if there was anything we needed. Overall I would definitely recommend and would return here, this has been our favourite place to stay in the few cottages we have stayed in. Thank you to Linda and Rachael. Sorry its taken so long to review xx

The 1 star is for Rachel key holder helpful gave her opinion on the property to us
The owners don't tell the truth beware!
Having enjoyed a variety of cottages up and down the UK, it's easy to become a little blase about our stays. Plas Dorothea raised the bar however.
As well as having all of the usual requirements (bedding, towels, plenty of space, beautiful surroundings, ample kitchen and bathroom facilities), this lovely house also has its own unique feature- a built in pub.
This added considerably to the weekend atmosphere. Throw in a chest of fancy dress items and a karaoke machine, and a special occasion results.
Thanks too to Linda and Rachel for their excellent communication.
