Spent a fantastic few autumn days here. Spectacular location, beautiful walks for my two labradors and all the creature comforts when we returned in the evenings.
We spent a cold weekend in February at this lovely cottage, The toasty warm log burner and heating made us snug and there’s nothing quite like a log burner on a cold day.
The cottage has everything you need...and more. The warm welcome that you get from Fiona is superb and there are so many additional lovely touches that make this a real home from home. The table was laced, a bottle of red was just asking to be opened and there were fresh flowers in vases.
Everything has a spotless rustic charm, this isn’t some grubby cottage where the last guests are still apparent, this is a first class and sparkling clean place where you can’t help but relax.
The abbey is just breathtaking, and when you open up the shutters in the morning, there it is, in all its magnificence. Priceless.
There is a downside of course...that you have to leave!
Would we stay again? In a heartbeat.
Very pretty cottage in an excellent position to walk into the village, right opposite the Abbey. Everything you were likely to need was provided. Dining table laid out with candles and napkins on arrival so that was a lovely surprise, thank you! Had a couple of dinners in the village, Rose and Crown does particularly good steaks, it is a pub and not what you'd call sophisticated but we were warmly welcomed if slightly of interest to some of the locals! Had a good dinner at Anchor Inn and a filling breakfast at White Monk. Nearby Fountain Inn does a very nice Sunday lunch, book ahead, it was busy!
Our family have spent a fabulous week at this gorgeous cottage - teenagers, parents and grandparents plus dog. We have walked, kayaked, cycled and climbed all at nearby locations. The owners Malcolm and Fiona gave us a lovely welcome with fresh flowers, cake and wine when we arrived and the cottage certainly deserves its 5 stars. Since returning home, minus a wallet, Fiona has gone out of her way to locate it and return it to us. Wonderful! We certainly hope to go back again one day.
Delightful & comfortable cottage with everything you need. The view to the Abbey is beautiful to wake to each day.
