I was looking for somewhere not too far from home to do some intensive studying with no distractions or disruptions & this proved to be the perfect place! The property was easy to find & access.

The perfect location to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The Bolthole exceeded our expectations with it's design, comfort and stunning location. The wet weather didn't deter us from going on two lovely walks and the cottage itself was luxury in every sense. The owners were very welcoming, and the treats and personal touches make it a class above Read morethe rest. Hide

Perfect place for our getaway. The muffins and continental breakfast were a real treat, as was the silence and beauty of the location. Looking forward to a longer stay so we can explore the area more.
