“Lovely”
Reviewed March 31, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We stayed in Brook House 1 and 2 to celebrate my Mum's 80th birthday at the end of March. The cottages were even nicer than they look in the photos, with lovely log fires, loads of character and everything you need to make your stay comfortable. The two cottages are adjoining so it was perfect for a big family group, you can choose to breakfast together or seperately in your own cottage and having two living rooms meant we could spread out when we wanted to. We had children of various ages but they all loved the puddle ducks and spring lambs without exception, the gorgeous babbling brook across a quiet lane, daffodils (Springtime only!) and sunshine (good luck!) and the surrounding hills, all made for a perfect setting and a really lovely weekend. We had Sunday lunch at the Sun Inn down the road. We had read mixed reviews of the pub but we thought the food was fine and the owners had an infinite amount of patience while we tried to get the order right for 18 of us!

“Amazing location,wonderful cottage”
Reviewed January 8, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We were a group of 10 and stayed during Christmas for 7 days. Had a fantastic time. The village is quiet and the cottage really cosy.Mrs Trafford is always on hand if you have an inquiry or need an advice. We would definetly love to go back during summer so we can enjoy the sun as well.
