Lovely cottage, very friendly owners, beautiful quiet location.

Mr Adams, Radstock, March 2014

The cottage was particularly well equipped, the owner had gone out of her way to make it a real home from home. The cottage was located in a lovely quiet area with easy access to lots of beautiful countryside and places to visit.

Mr Hudson, Rossendale, July 2013

It was like getting off the rat-race into another world. I would recommend to anyone who needs peace and quiet, and country air!

Mr Reeves, Bath, June 2013

The owners had provided everything to make our stay comfortable, plenty of wood for the fire and a welcome pack of milk, eggs, tea and welsh cakes. Located in a beautiful country setting.

Mr Collier, Bungay, June 2013
