The two floor studio apartment is a quaint and very comfortable apartment. The views as you wake in the morning are just stunning. Other members of our family were in the Talbot House adjoining, and this made the holiday so much better by being able to socialize and eat together in the evenings. We were also allowed to take our three well behaved dogs with us which is a bonus as it is difficult to find properties where they would be allowed. We would thoroughly recommend this accommodation to anyone and will look forward to returning there one day soon.
It was an all round fine experience. We found nothing at all to complain about. Out of the owner's control is the relative absence of walks without a vehicle from the house which do not involve entering or crossing the A6.
We stayed in this self-catering cottage for 1 night (2 adults) to break up a long road trip. It's very comfortable - lots of lovely rustic wooden carpentry and a wood burner (although we didn't need it as we stayed in July). There's lots of wildlife about, there's a river weir basically on the doorstep and the village is quiet; great for walks if you're staying longer. Nearest pub is 15 minutes walk in the next village (The Butcher's Arms), with great food (but book in advance if you're a larger party).

Me and nine friends booked the place for four nights and it was super swanky for the meagre price. Everybody was blown away by the interior and the location. We didn't meet the owners but felt comfortable that they would be able to help if we needed it - best of both worlds! The fireplace was a bit smokey but I think that was probably our own ineptitude and the place was cosy without the fire anyway. Currently enjoying the Sarah Hall novel set at Carhullan, quite a read after staying here. Thanks so much for a truly magical stay.
We stayed at talbot house as a base for a glorious summer wedding, but we had a lovely surprise, in that, the surroundings were fabulous and we would love to come back for another trip. The cottage was quaint, clean and well equipped with great views.
