We decided to have a week away prior to the arrival of our first child and chose Toll Barn Cottage both because of it's location and the modern style of the conversion of this beautiful building. We were not disappointed. The cottage is beautiful and very well fitted out, with everything you could possibly need during your stay. It's very spacious and the galleried first floor adds a really lovely design feature.
Being seven months pregnant, it was great to have a few walks right on the doorstep. The reservoirs offer great circular walks, and meant that our mud loving dog arrived back from walks as clean as he left which is very unusual. The surrounding area offers great days out, but equally this cottage is great for a relaxing holiday. We very much enjoyed our evenings in front of the fire, and were very sad to leave. It's a great couples get away, and was excellent to find such a lovely property which we could take our dog to.
If there is a downside to the property, it is it's proximity to the road. Having said that, it's not a terribly busy road outside the peak hours, and the bedroom is set to the back of the property meaning we remained undisturbed during our morning lay in's.
We will definitely return should the opportunity arise.
