    • “All very good, and satisfied with all aspects of the holiday. A quiet location, although near to the main road, didn't find it too noisy. Plenty of facilities available, and it was lovely and warm. Plenty do see and do, and very close to several attractions, one week was barely long enough to see everything! Close to shops and supermarkets so food shopping was easy. All in all, a very pleasant stay.”

    • “We flew to Liverpool and drove down. We were visiting for university interviews. I was not very sure abt driving in the snow, as Jersey comes to a stand still when it snows, but Mrs Hobbs re-assured me via text in the days leading up to, and as we travelled down. It was fantastic to have that contact and she gave us a warm welcome when we got there! There was plenty of parking. The house was warm and welcoming, well decorated and equipped. Bedding was sumptuous and sooo comfortable! Views fantastic and calming. All in all a very relaxing time!”

    Mrs Butler, Peterborough, January 2014

    • “The cottage was a mini retreat in beautiful surroundings, I stayed at the cottage on a Friday with 2 of my bridesmaids and it was the perfect setting for us to relax, drink champagne and get excited for the wedding preparation the following day. My new husband and I then went back to the cottage on the Sunday and spent a few days relaxing and reminiscing about our wonderful day. The cottage was spectacular and everything we hoped for, beautifully decorated with everything available to feel home away from home. An amazing pub opposite to giving us the freedom to come and go as we pleased without having to drive anywhere. We will absolutely be staying there again for many future mini breaks. A stunning location I would recommend to anyone.”
