Wendy's review arrived today -"Lowdale Park Cottage is a fantastic cottage in wonderful location with great walks straight from the door. The orchard was lovely to sit in and a great place for the dog to play. The cottage is homely and very well equiped and the open fire was enjoed by all. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. For peace and quiet this is an unbeatable cottage and we will definately return". Lowdale Park available for the next few weeks - sleeps 4 - £450 for a full week and only £299 for a 3 night break (please ring 015394 42435 to book) ... See MoreSee Less
