Perfect little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

I used this property to stay in the night before my wedding as I was getting married in a nearby Church. I wanted a place for my bridesmaids and I to stay and get ready in the morning. The owner left me a card and a bottle of fizz to say congratulations and was so helpful during the booking process. The cottage was perfect for our needs and has a huge bathroom and a very handy keypad entry door so you dont have you worry about keys!

I would definitely recommend!

The perfect place to spend Christmas

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is absolutely beautiful and the perfect place to spend Christmas. We were met by the owners who were very welcoming and had left a lovely welcome package with treats for everyone including our six month old Grandson and our daughter's guide dog.The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare Christmas dinner for ourselves and family members who visited us on Christmas day. The rooms are very warm and comfortable and we felt very much at home. The beds were very comfortable and we had plenty of towels. The cottage was decorated for Christmas with lovely lights, decorations and a beautiful Christmas tree, there was also a Christmas tree with lights outside the door. We all have a fantastic time with lots of lovely walks in the area and visits to local venues. We hope to return in the summer with our bikes and try out some of the cycle routes near by.

Perfect Christmas

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage was perfect for our stay over the Christmas holiday. It was so welcoming and warm with everything looking so clean and tidy. It had a little garden which was safe for our dog and situated at the end of a very quiet lane. One of the benefits for us was having a utility room so that we could store all the food we had brought with us for the festivities. The kitchen was extremely well equipped. This is a good place to stay if you like walking and is situated near to a lot of interesting places to visit.
