Perfect cottage in wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

So glad I found this little gem, my husband, daughter, son in law and two grand children 8 and 18 months had a wonderful few days here visiting Alton towers, waterworld, monkey forest then Cadbury world on the way home. The cottage is lovely in wonderful secluded grounds with just the sound of sheep and birds. Pauline has provided everything you could need and more, I wasn't expecting so much and the little touches like home made cakes, fresh eggs and milk are very much appreciated, she also told me about local shops,restaurants and places to visit. The weather wasn't too good but the cottage is very cosy we absolutely loved it and would recommend it to everyone
