We've just got back from our two night stay at Crofter's Cottage today. Every moment was amazing and we will definitely go again. The cottage is unbelievably cute and overflowing with character. The farm is beautiful and the animals are lovely.
If we were to use one word to sum up our trip it would simply be amazing!
When booking the cottage we were excited just from the photos however seeing the cottage and the landscape in person was spectacular.
When we arrived we were met by Eddie who showed us all we needed to know and then left us to it but it was reassuring to know that him and Lou were available had we needed them at anytime.
Eddie and Lou are great hosts. They give you everything you need and more down to the little unexpected touches like robes and candles.
There is nothing we can fault about the cottage. The location is perfect, views outstanding and the hot tub is the ideal to way to warm up after a long day walking (finding the local pub)
We cannot recommend the cottage highly enough and will most definitely be returning.
This was our second stay at Crofters Cottage and this time we chose to spend Christmas here! Wow! We forgot just how amazing the views were!! We only left the cottage once in the 5 nights we stayed, we had everything we needed right there!
Relaxing in the hot tub on Christmas Day with champagne was just perfect and we made special memories to last a lifetime!
A small suggestion is that the oven needs a grill or a shelf putting in to raise your food off the bottom otherwise it quickly burns. This wasn't a problem for us as we turned an oven tin upside down and sat things on that but it could do with a minor tweak!
Thanks once again to Eddie &I Louise for a great stay and we look forward to returning again soon!
What a fantastic stay myself and my husband had in crofters cottage, a gorgeous little cottage beautifully decorated and very clean. We stayed just before Halloween and there were some cute and touching decorations that added to the homeliness of the cottage. The bottle of wine was also a lively touch! The stove kept the cottage toasty warm and we also used it to cook food and this was something new and enjoyable for us. Plenty of fuel was provided. The views over Alston were superb especially enjoyed sitting in the hottub as the evening approached it was very romantic. There were plenty of candles provided in the cottage and around the hot tub to add to the ambience!
We took a walk into Alston via the farm and visited some of the resident animals such as Bertie the buzzard and Kiki the pig. It was a beautiful day and a splendid walk along the lake to a local pub in the beautiful village.
Eddie was a very friendly welcoming man and when we left something behind he kindly offered to post it out to us.
I have never written a trip advisor review but this little haven was certainly worth it and we will most definitely return.
