Absolutely gorgeous, clean and perfectly adequate place in an excellent location. Lovely decor and so relaxing. Stunning views from each window and close the the ski field and cave. We just loved our stay here.
We really enjoyed staying at Pewsey Cottage, the owner was extremely friendly and helpful and the house had everything we needed, including loads of games, books and a basketball for the local court. The log burner is amazing and the views from the house are beautiful. Thank you.
