Sarah and Joe made us very welcome to Hawk Cottage. They had prepared a welcome pack which covered most initial requirements when you book self catering.However the pack included fresh eggs from the resident chickens, newly baked bread, local beer,butter,and jam,honey and marmalade...all very welcome!The flowers were a lovely extra.The cottage was very clean,warm and welcoming with adequate towels, bedding and kitchen ware ...more than two people could need.
Everything was in good working order including the heating which we were grateful for after a cold wet day out.
The cottage is away from the local villages and the lovely quiet roads were a plus. The nearest village for food etc is Stocksbridge which has everything you would need plus a new shopping outlet ...Fox Valley...not huge but has a good variety of food and clothing shops.
All in all a very good Easter break, near to many lovely places or nice enough to relax in the garden.Plenty of space for children to play safely.....and see the chickens!
We would love to go back .
Great welcome package with fresh eggs from the chickens in the garden. The cottage provides everything needed and is in a beautiful area with fantastic views on the way to from the cottage, lots of hills and valleys and lakes all around. The outside space is fantastic with trampoline, climbing frame and tennis net and racquets and goal net for football.
