Guestbook comments from the manager

Roger, Wendy & family, Yorkshire 2006.

A most enjoyable family holiday. Perfect location, perfect weather, perfect holiday cottage. We are all agreed, the best cottage we have stayed in. The children loved the animals (dogs and chickens) and the pool. Hope to come back soon, many thanks.

Mr & Mrs Hossfield, Mr & Mrs Acton, Mr & Mrs Hollis, Mr & Mrs Goodman, Midlands, 2008.

Well equipped, comfortable accommodation for 4 couples. Honiton Golf Course worth playing. Good evening meal at Sidmouth Arms.

Lamb, Bullough & Slight families, Kent & Surrey 2007.

We have had a lovely holiday. Thank you for the welcome pack, especially bread and cakes etc. Michael's Port was just right for our large family including a toddler and 3 month old baby.

Taylors & Webbs, Essex 2007. Great place, comfy beds and brilliant to have our own bathrooms, no queueing in the morning. Lovely holiday home and very welcoming hosts, lovely gardens.

A successful few years with English Country Cottages.

Beautiful house with loads of space and brilliantly equipped

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay over a very stormy new years weekend. The house is beautiful and had plenty of space for the kids to run free and play even though the weather meant we weren't outside much. The excellently equipped kitchen and big table was great for big family meals and socialising space whilst doing the cooking. It was also so lovely to have all the Christmas decorations and lights up!

Beautiful home from home in great location.

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect for groups of people wanting a home from home place to stay. The house was clean and had everything we needed. The bedrooms were spacious with the added bonus of each having its own ensuite. Garden is lovely and the patio area ideal for the summer evenings. Location is great to explore all different areas surrounding the house. Would definitely recommend and return in the future.
