The holiday property was in a remote and isolated area, but this provided a nice peaceful atmosphere from the usual buzz of the city. It was cosy and provided plenty of room for 2 guests. It kept us warm in the cold weather, with the added pleasure of an indoor hot tub located outside of the main cottage. Overall, a really relaxing stay and would definitely recommend for a getaway.

Miss Georgina R,

great location and facilities , great place to spend a week

Mr John P,

The Crows Nest is an absolute gem, one of the nicest properties we have stayed in for sure - of such high quality, cleanliness and comfort. The owners have thought of everything, it really was a wonderful place to stay - the kitchen (and every item within) was immaculate, as was the whole property. The hot tub out in its own little summerhouse with a view over the valley - just perfect. A lovely comfy sofa and big TV. Just perfect! Loved it.

Ms Wendy L,

The holiday property was first class. Everything was up to a very high standard. Very spacious and clean, inside and outside the property. The private hot tub in the summer house adjacent to the cottage was great. We used it each day of our stay. The proprietor gave us a warm welcome on arrival and explained everything we needed to know about the facilities and the surrounding roads/area. The welcome pack we received was a nice touch too. All in all, a terrific stay.

Mr John S,

Beautiful cottage, lovely location and a very nice welcome from the owner Aubrey. Hot tub was very good at the end of the day. Will be very happy to visit again as the location and surrounding area are stunning.

Mr David S,
