“Lovely place”
Reviewed July 18, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The property was as described nice big open plan living area and lots of storage in the bedrooms.
The kids loved playing football in the garden or table tennis in the games room, or feeding carrots to the ponies. The grownups liked the hot tub once the kids were in bed. The location was good to get to the activities that we had booked. D&G is a good choice with the kids.

Stayed at the above cottage for four nights, the weather was not great, but the cottage more than made up for it. The views were amazing and there was plenty to do around the area. The hot was amazing and the games room was good.

“Fantastic property - highly recommended”
Reviewed May 2, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Stayed here for 3 nights with a group of friends for a weekend getaway. The property exceeded our expectations, by far. The house and gardens are extremely well maintained, tidy and spotlessly clean.

On arrival, the fridge was stocked with milk, fruit juice, wine, butter and cheese. Tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits and oatcakes were also available. A very nice touch! The kitchen was very well equipped with all of the pots, pans, utensils, crockery, cutlery and glasses you'll need.

Lots of towels for bathing and the hot tub were available. The hot tub was excellent, comfortably accommodating 6 adults.

The bedrooms were spacious, clean and very comfortable. And three bathrooms meant that there was no queuing for showers or toilet, etc.

The owners popped in to check how we were getting along and they were very pleasant and friendly.

A fabulous weekend was had by everyone and I couldn't recommend this property enough.

How helpful were the directions to the property? How easy was key pickup/access to the property?
