Cosy cottage in a peaceful and beautiful setting

Myself and my partner stayed at The Pheasant's Nest in Feb 2016. It was lovely. A great location for walking our dog, Unna, with the hills and countryside on your doorstep. Gullet Quarry was a fifteen minute walk away and absolutely stunning. The property itself is small but cosy and we had absolutely everything we needed. It has been built and decorated to an extremely high standard. We had no problems with anything. Heating was great and the shower was AMAZING. The property has a full kitchen, the WiFi worked well (we managed to watch three seasons of Luther on Netflix!) and the bed was comfortable. The Pheasant's Nest was also extremely clean!!! There is a fully enclosed garden which was great for the dog, and Deb (the owner) even offered to let us use her garden while she was away, so the dog could explore (which Unna loved). Unna is a large dog (Akita) but she had plenty of room both in and outside the property. We always worry about letting her into a garden when we go away as she is a skilled escape artist! But this garden was fully enclosed and no way she could get out. The gates were also high enough for her not to jump over (which she has done in the past!). Please don't be put off by the building work opposite, we heard absolutely no noise at all and were here for a week. Phone signal wasn't great with EE, but fine with Vodafone. The owner, Deb, is lovely and will be happy to help with anything you need. Despite going away on holiday herself, she made sure there was someone around if we needed anything, and even texted me to ask if we were ok. I would definitely recommend this property if you want a nice, relaxing holiday in a beautiful location and really perfect accommodation.
