    • “This property was presented to a high standard, it was beautifully furnished and the layout was ideal for us. Despite the inclement weather there was plenty to do in the locality and the friendly owners were on hand if required and supplied some useful ideas for day trips. A pet friendly property with walks from the door and room for the dog to run in the adjacent paddock. We wouldn't hesitate to book again or recommend this property, it was great!”

    Mr Hook, Folkestone, August 2014

    • “This holiday was one of the most relaxing I have ever had! The property is a gem. It is the most secluded and comfortable place I have ever stayed in. The bed and bedroom were delightful and the bed so comfortable that I never wanted to leave it. Although the weather was awful we spent most afternoons in front of the open log fire just chilling. To open your door in the mornings and see the horses in the paddock was something else! The pub across the road served wonderful food and the lovely little shop round the corner catered for our every need. It was all amazing.”
