Overview

About the property

Elevated position with stunning views of the surrounding landscape.

Hill Top is your ideal central base for exploring the North Pennies Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and beyond.

Situated on the southern flank of Killhope Law, this cottage is located at around 1800ft (550 metres) above sea level, making it one of the highest altitude accommodation properties in the country.

On this registered smallholding there are currently 10 fully free-range chickens and 2 Muskovy ducks. The smallholding is also surrounded by lots of open access moorland which often has sheep grazing on it. Free range eggs are available for purchase from your hosts.

Weather: While the summer months provide gorgeous clear days ideal for rambling walks and lunch at the local pub, the winter months bring a whole new perspective on country life, with an almost guaranteed appearance of snow each year.

Very friendly with a great view

Had to leave a night early due to family illness but the property was all most perfect for our visit. Loved the view very dramatic. Very friendly.

Enchanting Moorland magic

  • 4 of 5

We four adults escaped to Hilltop for a New Year lost in the hills... the long steep private drive takes you up to a cosy little cottage, the snug bedrooms on the ground floor and space to socialise on the upper level. The open plan compact kitchen allows someone to prepare dinner (watch your head on the low roof!) while others wait at the table or relax on the sofas in front of the great log burner. You can also enjoy a drink on the balcony! Fantastic local hiking as you can ascend the mountain directly via private access and then explore the rest of the area... the hosts were also fantastic, being very friendly and welcoming!
