The peaceful location was a welcome break for us and we loved the garden with all the visiting wildlife. The cottage itself is a not so little gem and we had everything we needed to feel at home. My city loving adult children were completely smitten. Would definitely recommend. Overall Rating: 5 Stars

Fantastic cottage in a great location. The peace and quiet was awesome after the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The garden birds and visiting red squirrels made it very special.

The situation of the cottage was perfect for myself and my family. Watching red squirrels and rabbits in the garden at the rear and the blue tits at the front was superb. The farm animals across the footpath also kept our attention, particularly one horse that waited for passers by to stroke him. Overall Rating: 5 Stars

Nice to see red squirrels. Could do with more than one set of keys. Broadband great but a little slow. Would definitely consider going back. Overall Rating: 4 Stars

The cottage was wonderfully situated, very peaceful and a joy to watch the wildlife from our windows. It was well equiped and very clean and comfortable. We would certainly like to come again. Two very minor points; We arrived in a brand new hire car and was worried about it getting scratched by the overgrown vegetation in the lane. It was too far to walk with luggage etc. Maybe more regular trimming would help? In London we are brainwashed into recycling and noticed there were no facilities at the cottage. Everything else was wonderful....Thankyou. Overall Rating: 5 Stars
