Make time to visit the other delightful towns and villages of these fascinating moors, where honey-coloured sandstone buildings lend a warm contrast to the deep purple and green of the surrounding hills.

A very pleasant start to self catering having always used hotels before. Very clean. Bottle of wine was a nice touch. I would have liked the spa/pool to be open longer as it was only available when we were out and about. Would recommend.

Property is in a beautiful location and is very clean with very comfortable beds and lovely bedding. We had one or two questions (heating and icy steps) which were dealt with very quickly and in a friendly way, the owners were easy to contact. Lots of crockery, glasses, pans etc. Improvements: A coffee table in the lounge. Pool open earlier so we cRead moreould have a swim before we went out for the day. Hide

The bed constantly creaked when you moved & the mattress was so uncomfortable, we ended up taking it turns to sleep on the sofa. The shower would not get hot even though we tried to turn it up full. The sauna hot tub and jacuzzi closed at 6pm. Most people like to relax in the evening, after they have been out all-day walking. The only pub or restauRead morerant was closed for two days and only did food on the weekend. Overall it was just a break we needed but just didn't come sold as seen on the website. Hide
