November 2021

Really lovely cottage if you are looking for a rural retreat, however do expect to have to drive everywhere for anything needed and it be a minimum 40/45 round trip for milk. Cottage was immaculate and clean, could do with a little more “cosy” adding downstairs where tiled with curtains etc, but that might just be me!!

Lovely cottage with comfortable furnishings and all the amenities you could need. It is very quiet and peaceful, only sounds are the birds, sheep and occasional car. Had a wonderful relaxing break. Good small farm shop 10 minutes drive away, really good food. Will certainly return

We loved staying at this beautiful house. It is well furnished and the kitchen is very well stocked to a high standard. It is so peaceful, set in the countryside well away from main roads but within an easy drive to both the north and south coasts.

The house was great. I will definitely look at booking with Aspect again in the future.

The cottage is in a secluded location and perfect for a quiet getaway. It has a homely feel with all the little things you need for a relaxing stay. We would recommend it and hope to visit again soon
