WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY

Penny, 3rd May 2019

We had a really wonderful time and would definitely go back. Great places to visit, scenery amazing - just like Wuthering Heights and expected Heathcliffe to appear any moment. Lots of good places to eat out too. Lots of walks - so we are all fitter including the dog!

Emily, 24th December 2018

This has to be the most beautiful cottage inside and out. We had the most wonderful stay and can't wait to return again. It is an absolute gem.

Brian, 23rd November 2018

Fantastically designed and uniquely situated halfway up the Black Mountains, this is a getaway location to beat them all!

Jamie, 31st August 2018

Points Cottage is just the most idyllic and sensational location. We had a wonderful weekend break and wish we had booked for longer. The views are utterly unbelievable and the whole place is jaw-droppingly beautiful. Carina and Ady are so lovely and helpful and we are really looking forward to returning when we can for longer.

Susan, 20th August 2018

Can not recommend this cottage and location more highly. Wonderful owners who live next door but it still feels very private. Beautiful scenery and walks on your doorstep. Local shop is fantastically well stocked and lots great pubs and places to eat within a short driving distance. The house is lovely. Everything is provided for with extra touchesRead more like a fresh cake, milk and a bottle of cider. My two young children loved it as much as my husband I did. We cant wait to return. Hide

Melanie, 6th August 2018
