Cottage Review:  

A five star holiday: staying at Keepers Cottage was a delight. The cottage is spacious, immaculately clean, and has an extremely well appointed kitchen (cooker, microwave, fridge andfreezer and a dishwasher) with everything you need and loads more. A haven of peace and rest in the heart of the countryside with beautiful landscape all around.

Very friendly & helpful hosts who gave us a warm welcome.

We will be back!

Cottage Review:  

We had a fantastic time staying at Keeper's Cottage - beautiful surroundings,amazing views and a great cottage with everything you could need. We have stayed in a lot of self-catering cottages and this is definitely our favourite! A brilliant base for exploring the area and so peaceful at the cottage, it was wonderful. We really enjoyed the wildlife (thank you Allison for making sure the bird feeder was always full!), and the children loved the farm animals and the quad bike rides Allison very kindly took them on - we can't wait to return!

Cottage Review:  

A fabulous relaxing holiday and probably our best ever (stay in a lot of self-catering cottages in North West and Scotland). We had a lovely relaxing time and hardly ventured out. The cottage was comfortable and the vast views from the conservatory were stunning. The Owner's were lovely and Allison went out of her way to make our holiday extra special (One of the party limited mobility and she kindly took her as a passenger on a quad-ride to a neighbouring friend's farm to look at the animals).

Make up of party:  We were a couple and due to mobility difficulties were able to make use of the two bedrooms which was ideal.

Peaceful and remote, with fantastic views from elevated location. Great for anyone wanting to get away from it all for a bit. Lots of great walks to be had in the surrounding area, but we spent most of the time just relaxing in the beautiful cottage itself!

Cottage Review:  

We had a wonderful stay at Keepers Cottage in August,which offered a truly peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle. The comfortable,well equiped and tastefull accommodation provided a great base for exploring the wonderful hills and countryside that surround the cottage. The views from the cottage are spectacular, best enjoyed with a glass of wine in the conservatory at the end of a days walking or cycling! The warm and generous welcome from Allison and Owen was much appreciated.
