    • “The Loft was amazing! It had everything needed for a lovely relaxing holiday, would definitely recommend to my friends.The owners were very nice and accommodating. The hot tub was fantastic!”

    Mrs Kent, Bromsgrove, March 2015

    • “The accommodation was perfect for 2, it was spacious and clean and decorated classy and modern. The views from the hot tub were beautiful, as was the surrounding scenery in the area. It was peaceful, easy to relax and we had the privacy to do our own thing. The Loft was well equipped with everything we needed; with a guidebook with plenty of ideas if we wanted to venture out. The owners were friendly, there are notes around the cottage to guide you through any questions such as how to use the hot tub and what to do on check out day etc. I would without a doubt recommend this holiday to people who love the countryside and would like a bit of peace and quiet with a loved one for a few days!”

    Miss Whitehead, Barnsley, February 2015

    • “Our stay at The Loft was truly wonderful, watching the sunset from the hot tub was a particular favourite. Fabulous location to explore local towns and countryside, and within easy travelling distance to Wales and the Brecon Beacons. A special thanks to the owner for going out of her way to help my boyfriend surprise me on my birthday, she went that extra mile to make our stay perfect. Would definitely recommend, very comfy stay at The Loft.”

    Miss Cole, Chelmsford, February 2015

    • “An absolutely stunning little place, right amongst the countryside. My partner and I would not have changed a single thing. The owners were so welcoming. The decor in 'The Loft' was so beautiful, with everything you need from cooking appliances to bath robes and any toiletries you may have forgotten, are all provided. The room overlooks a stunning field filled with sheep and makes you feel like you are in the heart of such a private countryside. The added bonus of the hot tub looking out over the fields was also spectacular and watching the sunset at night just made our holiday even more enjoyable. Thank you so much for such a wonderful holiday, where my partner and I could celebrate our anniversary in peace and tranquillity.”

    Ms Skinner, Haywards Heath, December 2014
