    We had a lovely stay at Drover’s Cottage and Simon was very welcoming. Cottage itself was extremely spacious and well equipped, online pictures don’t do it justice. Bedrooms are all a good size and the super king beds are huge and extremely comfortable. Ensuite bathrooms all finished to a great standard. As other reviewers noted the pumps the push water around the property are reasonably loud, so if any water supply is running, you will hear it throughout the property. Didn’t bother us in the slightest, but may bother others. Downstairs is largely one big open living space that worked well for us. Small patio garden outside was nice for us to sit outside in the evening and enjoy the portable bbq we took with us. Had the B&B been active when we were there I think we might have felt a bit overlooked sat outside. Location is a great base to explore, most of the attractions were 15-30 mins drive. The cottage itself is a little remote with no amenities in walking distance… and cottage is on a quiet but fast road, with traffic whizzing past on the odd occasion. Garden area is enclosed but you’d want to keep an eye on younger children if outdoors. Travel cot, high chair and stair gates provided, all excellent. All in all a wonderful stay and would stay again.
