We stayed with some friends in the self-catering cottage which was in a lovely location, just down from the house and the moor. The cottage is smart on the outside but on the inside not what we had expected - the furnishings are nice but the walls and other bits of DIY were really badly done so we felt we were sitting more in a bedsit than a country cottage!
The supplied cake was lovely, though being only a quarter of a cake there wasn't enough to share it around.
The website says that all toiletries will be crabtree and evelyn and though some were (they smelt lovely, but were not well presented in shabby plastic travel bottles) the shower gel and others were just bog standard hotel fare and not very appealing at all.
The owner was most charming to begin with, however at the end of our stay was quite rude, which put a complete damper on our stay and the whole weekend. We assume this to be because we were a relatively young group but it was very unfair and most upsetting, especially as it had not been cheap staying there or travelling there.
If you do stay, which I would understand as the location is so beautiful be aware of the craft owner and take an OS map! The cottage is down a small track, marked on it, and not hard to find but the directions given by the owner are hilariously bad and confusing!
We, however, will not be going back. Youth hostel next time, or the nearest over-priced hotel.
