We spent our 26th year anniversary at Fotheregill Cottage and it was everything if more more than expected. Place was clean and tidy. Special touches like tea, coffee, milk and rusk to welcome us. Karen went out of her way to make our stay as romantic as ever. Beautifully heart shaped rose petals on the bed, organza draped dinning area drizzled with rose petals , all added to the ambiance of a truly beautiful weekend. Thank you Karen and Stephen for an awesome weekend. We will definitely be visiting again soon.
