Loved Upnover Cottage and its quirky layout. It is a great place to go back and relax in after a day of walking. Perfect location to spend bonfire night, much to the relief of our dogs. The welcome treats were very much appreciated.

A very comfortable and homely residence in a good location for a fine holiday. Very well equipped and spacious in every way except the bathroom which is compact and therefore functional rather than luxurious. We were five adults and three children and all very much enjoyed our stay.

This place is wonderful. Well appointed, comfy beds, lots of space, quirky layout and quiet. The village is lovely with lots of places to eat.

A lovely village in a great location. We walked just 2 minutes up the road for a lovely roast dinner. The cottage was really nice, amenities were great. We managed the 1 bathroom okay with 5 adults and a toddler but it might be a struggle if there's more of you. Beds were clean and comfy and the rooms spacious.

A lovely cottage with plenty of space and in a nice remote location that has a local shop (quite pricey) and a few pubs to choose from. Front room had good facilities allowing us to relax and enjoy films. The Samsung smart TV allows you to connect a USB hard drive. Beds were very comfy and the towel supply was excellent.

We had a great time at the cottage. The kitchen was well stocked with equipment, the beds were really comfy and the location was great.
