Very friendly and welcoming on arrival. Ideally suited to our needs. Ideal location for what we had planned. The cottage was all we needed for the stay. Enjoyed our stay.
Mr Easom, Tonbridge, August 2012
We liked the friendly and ever helpful attitude of the owner and playing football and catch ball with her two daughters. The bottle of wine and the cream tea waiting for us were a nice touch and it is such a peaceful spot. This was our third visit to Palmers Lodge and I'm sure we'll go again.
Mr White, Southampton, May 2012
The holiday was first class. As the place was so clean and tidy we could relax right away, and the lady that owned the cottage was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble for her. We really had a great time even though it rained most of the time!
Mr Irwin, Malmesbury, April 2012
The cottage was clean and modern which made it a really comfortable place to stay in. Very welcoming, a real home from home. We will definitely be returning to Palmers Lodge!
