    • “Mouse Cottage is a lovely place to stay in a quiet countryside setting. The cottage itself is extremely roomy and is more than adequate for four persons. It is tastefully furnished in every room and the furniture is comfortable and of a high standard. Overall I would thoroughly recommend Mouse Cottage as holiday accommodation, I am sure you will not be disappointed.”

    Mr Marshall, Tamworth, August 2015

    • “Photos of the property on the website do not do this cottage justice, it's size was much bigger than we thought it would be which was a pleasant surprise. The owners had thought of everything that they thought holiday makers would need and we can't fault them for that. We had a wonderful holiday which was made all the better for staying at Mouse Cottage.”

    Mrs Batey, Grantham, August 2015

    • “A nice location and a spacious well maintained cottage that made for an excellent break.”

    Mr Spencer, York, July 2015

    • “We had a lovely stay in Mouse Cottage. The Cottage itself was clean, spacious, very well equipped and the owners were lovely and on hand should we have needed anything (we didn't!). We will definitely look to stay again. Thank you!”

    Mrs Poole, Pudsey, June 2015

    • “A lovely cottage in a small quiet village, an ideal retreat for the week. The owners were very helpful, and were there if we needed anything but were very unobtrusive.

    Mr Key, Cambridge, May 2015

    • “Mouse Cottage is very spacious, beautifully furnished and exceptionally clean. We had a really lovely, relaxing time there. The owners were very helpful and welcoming, but not intrusive at all. We had a lovely Easter break here and it was a delight to cook Easter lunch in the very well equipped kitchen. I was very impressed with our stay there and would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet break in beautiful countryside.”

    Mrs Pollendine, London, April 2015

    • “The cottage was in a beautiful setting. The owners were very helpful and friendly and offered advice on surrounding facilities. Many leaflets were available of local and surrounding areas of interest. Books and board/card games were available should you desire.”

    Mrs Aitken, Harwich, March 2015

    • “We enjoyed the seclusion and privacy the cottage lent us. It had all the amenities we needed and we were warmly welcomed by the host who ran through all the cottage's facilities very clearly. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable time at Mouse Cottage and would recommend it as a very cosy way to view the Cornwall and Dartmoor areas as well as Lands End!”

    Miss Lee, Nottingham, September 2014

    • “We had a really excellent experience. The owners were very welcoming and explained everything on arrival. We saw them occasionally during the week, but the accommodation was so good, we did not have to ask them for anything. It was a bonus that we were able to store our roof-box in their garage for the week. We would have no hesitation in recommending it to others and indeed we would happily book it again in the future.”
