    “We have had a wonderfully peaceful week at Yelfords.”

    The cottage itself is spacious and very comfortable - little touches such as lots of games and books and DVDs as well as bigger luxuries like three good size bathrooms plus of course a lovely wood-burning stove which we used most nights! The cottage is surrounded by breathtaking countryside with lots of walks from the cottage up on to the moor or through woods. It was so so quiet, we loved it.

    The cottage itself is spacious and very comfortable - little touches such as lots of games and books and DVDs as well as bigger luxuries like three good size bathrooms plus of course a lovely wood-burning stove which we used most nights! The cottage is surrounded by breathtaking countryside with lots of walks from the cottage up on to the moor or through woods. It was so so quiet, we loved it. Watching the sun rise from the master bedroom across the hills was very special. Our hosts live next door (the cottage is on their grounds) and are very welcoming and helpful. The service from Sykes was very good in that I was able to amend my booking easily and the directions to the cottage were easy to navigate despite the cottage being quite remote. Just a lovely week long break, hope to return.
