“Delightful Cottage, really enjoyed our stay, great location. Our son enjoyed the ‘mezzanine’ above the dining room as his hideaway. We loved the views of the hills whilst eating breakfast. Like the attention to detail eg maps, books, curtains, fabrics. Very comfortable in every way.”

“We all love Ellis Howe and appreciate the trouble you take to make it so welcoming. It feels more like ‘house-sitting’ for friends than ‘self catering accommodation’. We all hope that you will let us come again. It is very beautiful.”
