My family (4 adults and 1 teenager) and I thoroughly enjoyed our week stay in Orchard Cottage. It was exactly as described although bigger inside than we expected. The property was very well laid out with plenty of room to spread out. We enjoyed the garden and surrounding land, particularly walking to the trout lake and over the bridge to the island. The cottage is idyllically situated in the middle of nowhere, a real hidden gem, perfect for 'getting away from it all' but also a great base for the many things to see and do in the area. The cottage is a well equipped home from home and the owners Bob and Jane are very friendly & helpful. We would definitely recommend this property
