We had a beautiful stay at Blackdown Views. The cottage was so well equipped for a large group and was spacious enough to feel like we weren't on top of each other. The hot tub was such an added bonus and we had a perfect relaxing stay. We are already planning on returning again next year. Thank you very much.
We all had a great time. The kids had loads of room to run around inside and out. We were never short of anything; this cottage has everything in abundance and all to a high quality. The trampoline in the garden was a nice surprise. Would definitely consider returning.
Thank you for letting us be the first people to stay in your house! We have had lots of fun, especially in the hot tub and fishing in the lake!
