Guest Reviews


    • “A quiet location in a small village not too far from a main road. The cottage was very spacious, well maintained and equipped. One of the best we have stayed in and good value for money.”

    Mrs Ashcroft, Lincoln, August 2014

    • “Blackberry Cottage is a superb property, clean, bright and excellently equipped. The kitchen/diner is a lovely large sociable space for the family to eat and the wood burner in the sitting room meant we had cosy evenings too.”

    Mr Harrow, Fleet, August 2014

    • “This house was perfect for what we wanted, there was 8 of us in total, my brothers family and mine. The garden was perfect for the children as it was enclosed and safe for them to use. We used the house as a base to travel to the surrounding theme parks, Paultons Park, and Longleat Safari. We also travelled to Portsmouth. The facilities in the house were excellent, everything we needed to clean up after ourselves were there and also toys for the children. The owners were very friendly and we found their instruction manual very clear.”

    Miss Stead, Newcastle Upon Tyne, August 2014

    • “The cottage was extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean. It is by far the best self catering accommodation we have stayed in. There was nothing about the property that we could fault which therefore enabled us to enjoy the area knowing we had such a fantastic base to return to each day.”

    Mr Green, Borehamwood, July 2014

    • “What a little gem this was. Would so like to go back. Very welcoming hosts who left a welcome pack and a spotless 'home from home' for us to stay in. Perfect for a family get together and catch up.”
