My wife and I, along with our 5 month old, stayed at the cottage for 1 week. It has been lovingly restored by the owners who are extremely friendly and made perfect hosts.
Lots of thought has been put into this, with great attention to detail. On arrival, goodies were provided, so after a long drive we could make cups of tea with cake, taste their own free range eggs from the chickens and sipped our complimentary bottle of wine. Small things like soaps included, sugar at the ready, dishwasher tablets stocked etc meant that we didn't have to go to the shops for anything other than our own main meal ingredients. That is a really welcome thing when you arrive after a long drive, and those small things take effort to continuously stock up and provide that added value to guests. That effort, is a reflection on the owners, who have provided a peaceful and private space to relax in.
A previous review mentions a short walk to get to the cottage from the parking. This did not put us off, and indeed on arrival we discovered that the 'short walk', is just 20 meters from where the car is parked on the drive to where the door to the cottage is. It was not a reason not to visit, and we had no trouble with our 6 month old, even when there was thunder and lightning!
The bedrooms are in a converted roof space. Space is tight, I am 6'1", but frankly, I loved the atmosphere created by being snuggly tucked up in a cosy space. The owners made space for us to put a cot (provided) in the second bedroom, and we had no issues in enjoying the cosiness of the bedroom spaces. It is standing height in the middle of the room, and is only intrusive in trying to walk down the side of the bed - not an issue for us, and adds character and enjoyment to a week away.
All in all, I would fully recommend this cottage to all couples, couples & baby and couples with school age children etc - You may think twice with crawlers/toddlers due to the open plan spacious living downstairs, but it wouldn't stop us. The downstairs is perfectly appointed, and we greatly enjoyed eating breakfast on the completely private patio in the morning sun overlooking the roaming sheep on the expansive views. See our afternoon tea photo attached.
An exciting setting with chickens and sheep, and fetch your own eggs fun!
