    Lovely remote cottage

    The little touches on arrival that made it feel instantly welcoming - lights and heating on, welcome card and tray, fire already laid, milk in fridge, beautiful flowers. The cottage matched the description of remoteness which was exactly what we were looking for. The cleanliness and decor were perfect. The dogs loved all the woodland walks and the log burning stove! Lovely cottage in wonderful remote location - no wi-fi or mobile!!

    Great location

    To be honest the accommodation is only average, but the location , wildlife, weather, views, makes it special. The staff at Croft Castle are friendly and professional. Cleaning is important.

    Made enjoyable...

    The cottage was quaint, for people who live in a town it was great to be in the middle of nowhere. Having a log fire and not having wifi so the kids had to talk to us, do something different and go outside. It was a lovely change and I will recommend the experience to others. The staff at the big house were welcoming and we enjoyed the guided tours.
