“A COUPLE OF AUSSIES AWAY FROM HOME!!”

From the very first email contact with the owners of these two beautiful holiday homes, we felt very confident that our stay would be something special. Most certainly that is the way our holiday turned out - the village is 'picture-postcard' perfect, including the pub, with friendly locals. Our stay in "The Lodge" provided all that we required, the bedding and linen 'top-shelf', all furniture so comfortable and kitchen facilities all that we needed. Numerous attractions in this location can provide busy day trips. After such a day, we would often spend late afternoon in the pretty garden, with a glass of wine of course, and watch the sunset, fond memories of sharing such a time with our hosts and the resident dog.
Yes, we were a long way from our home, but it was so difficult to say goodbye to our hosts Andrew and Carol, we didn't really want to move on. Would recommend this self-catering stay without hesitation.

“Beautiful and relaxing.”
Reviewed 21 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

I stayed at the lodge with my husband to get away from our busy life's in London.
PERFECT....... It had everything we needed. Lovely village, great pub walking distance and good for our dog.
Andrew and Carol are fantastic hosts and couldn't do enough to make our stay stress free.
We will defiantly be back.

“A Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 10 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We stayed at the Bedford Cottage for a short break and really enjoyed our time there. The Cottage is a new build and offers all the modern facilities including a very nice en-suite. It is located in a very old lovely historical small village with its own old pub just across the road. It is an ideal place for chilling out that we wanted. Andrew and Carol were very helpful and welcoming in all aspects. We greatly recommend it and hope to visit it again in the future.

“A GREAT place to stay”

This new cottage was superb. Well furnished, very comfortable, extremely clean and with all the equipment that you are likely to need on holiday. Special reference to the cooker which was good and easy to work (we usually need a degree in electronics to get a holiday cooker to work!!). The village pub was about 100 yards away but not noisy. Excellent beer (member of CAMRA) and good, well priced food.
The cottage is situated close to the moor with lovely walks direct from the cottage.
Finally, but most importantly, the owners of the property, Andrew and Carol, were excellent hosts. Keen to ensure that you enjoyed your holiday and offering lots of information about the area.
We wll be back!!
