Cosy Cottage has been a delight from start to finish. Kerrie greeted us on arrival with treats and toys for our 3 dogs. The Cottage is cosy, homely and so dog friendly. Spotlessly clean,luxurious beds,well equipped kitchen,comfy lounge - could not fault a thing. We have stayed in many cottages over the years and this is definitely the best. Can't wait to come back! Thank you so much for all the thought and hard work put in to make Cosy Cottage so outstanding. CR, Cheshire

Cosy Cottage certainly lives up to its name - a very warm and comfortable cottage with everything that you need being provided.  It's also good to have a real dog friendly garden.  In more than twenty years of renting cottages this has to be the best one yet!  Forest walks kept the dogs tired.  A lovely warm and friendly welcome from Kerrie.  Thank you for all the presents.  A return visit is a must!
