Beautiful location - perfect tranquility

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location and charming and helpful owners. Cottage cosy and very comfortable with wood burning stoves. The surrounding grounds a wildlife enthusiasts dream with dragonflies/butterflies/insects to photograph. Made use of the unheated pool and rowed on the pond. Enjoyed the visits from the cockerel and chickens from the neighbouring farm. Guests need to provide storage facilities for food if planning to do self catering I.e food bags/containers/cling film. Kitchen could be a little better equipped in terms of perhaps more t towels and serving bowls but not a major problem.

Perfect Cottage Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Wow what a fantastic week. Weather to die for and just the most perfect cottage and grounds. The pool was put to great use by me and my 6 year old daughter, whilst my wife loved walking around the beautiful garden. We even managed a game or two of Badminton. The location was brilliant for exploring the Island and so very peaceful. Ann and Peter, the owners, allowed us complete privacy whilst being close by should we need them. Would highly recommend this property to anyone.

Fantastic cottage break!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for a great week in Rose Cottage! The cottage and its grounds were perfect, the kids loved the open space with the chickens and rabbits adding to the good feel of the countryside. The week we had wasn't the warmest but my son still managed a dip in the pool, if the sun had been shining we wouldn't have had to leave the garden all week. The log burners kept us cosy in the evening too.

The owners Ann and Peter were warm and welcoming and couldn't do enough to help.

We would definately love to return one day and would have no worries about recommending this property to our family and friends..a great week was had by all! Many thanks!

we came here last year it was lovely , this year the place is just as beautiful, quite and relaxing , with walks and a badminton area with a trampoline for the more younger person, the pond and pond house is a great place to sit and contemplate the day with a boat that can be taken out on the pond . the chickens and rabbits that run free are entertaining on a warn evening or sitting by the pool with a glass or two, its a fantastic place to unwind a good central place to explore the isle, or swim in the pool which we did every day. it was a fantastic holiday and would come again in heart beat, the owners Ann and Peter are so lovely nothing is to much ,from advice for places to go, to fresh free range eggs they leave by the door of the cottage if the chickens have been laying x
