Ivy Cottage is ideal for a group of friends/ 2 families as it provides 6 twin rooms which are of reasonable size, there are ample bathroooms and a large kitchen diner. The cottage is superbly equipped with ample crockery, cutlery and large pans for self catering for 12 people. The dish washer was a welcome addition, and utility room has washer and drier. There is a large drying room which we didn't need to use as the weather was fantastic for the week. A great cottage which was a great base for walking and cycling. Will definitely come back.

The cottage is well equipped and well looked after. The drying room was brilliant. The cottage was always warm and had great facilities. Comfortable beds and bedding. The location was perfect for us. It is remote and we did have to cross a small ford to get to it which was a problem on one day after a serious amount of rain.
Some of the furniture in the bedrooms has seen better days but it looks like this is in the process of being replaced.
In conclusion a perfect holiday cottage.
Ivy cottage is perfectly situated such that you appear to be isolated and in the wilderness where, in fact, shops are only 15 mins away. Similarly, access to ski slopes, mountain bike tracks or river is within the same 15 mins. The quiet is only interrupted by the odd sheep and occasional pony noises.
The house is spacious enough to accommodate no fewer than 12 persons in 6 bedrooms accompanied by 3 bathrooms. The kitchen/dining area is spacious and well equipped, central heating provides warmth where necessary and the recently extended back rooms (with underfloor heating) offer extensive storage and drying facilities for skiing, fishing and biking equipment. Logs are provided for an open hearth fire in the sitting room and the house is wifi connected with a landline to take incoming calls.
We found the accommodation comfortable, reasonably priced and very good value.
