The property was immaculate - spotless, with tasteful decor, furniture and fittings. It was cozy and warm despite very low overnight temperatures and a heavy fall of snow whilst we were staying! Barry and Nikki, the owners of the cottage, were incredibly friendly and helpful and took great pains to ensure we were having a good time. We would definitely return for another holiday.Wendy from London - 12th February 2019
