Property Notes
The cottage is most suitable for two people, a fantastic 'romantic retreat'. Although families of up to four are welcome, due to the layout of No.4 Coppermines the property is not suitable for infants or children under 8 years of age. The owners consider the cottage too small for four adults, except in exceptional circumstances and by prior arrangement only.

Please note that this cottage is situated within a mountain environment and as such, care and consideration must be given on approach to the cottage.

Fixed Ladder to small loft Bedroom - with low headroom, Velux window and twin futon beds, 8yrs+ only.

Customer Comments

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay in the beautiful setting of the Coppermines Valley. Many thanks.
L.B, August 2019

Beautiful cottage and extremely well appointed. Perfect for 2 and a dog.
M&C, June 2019

We have just returned from a brilliant weekend at 4 Mountain Cottages, where we were lucky enough to have a good amount of snow. The cottage is spotlessly clean, and while small, was everything we wanted for a relaxing and tranquil weekend. The property is ideally located to walk straight into the mountains, and has a cosy log burner for when you get back in. We walked to the Village each night for a couple of drinks and then back to the log burner and stunning views of The Old Man. Company were very good to deal with. Already looking at booking again for next year.
