“Enchanting old cottage in a forest garden”
Reviewed 27 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015
person found this review helpful

The Back o the Moon Cottage is about 80 years old. Wooden floors, some stunning period pieces of furniture, and a huge fireplace in the lounge. All set in an enchanting and totally private garden. It was a delight to return from forest walks and relax in front of a warm fire in the evenings. The cottage, despite its distinctive olde worlde charm, was very comfortable and well equipped (with a gas and an electric stove), a full bathroom and a separate shower room with basin and toilet, and every conceivable comfort from electric blankets to hundreds of books. An absolute delight for those who appreciate the kind of beauty that Hogsback has to offer. Thanks so much to Norma and Derek for sharing this gem with others.
