Peace, tranquillity & comfort. A well equipped kitchen.
Mrs Dulson, Maidstone, May 2013
It was a very relaxed break away. The cottage was superb. It was very warm and cosy. We are looking forward to a return visit as soon as we can get a booking. The owners were excellent hosts, welcoming us with fresh flowers and wine. Even the weather for our last 4 days was superb with over 10 hours of sun each day.
Mrs Brown, Corby, April 2013
For a late winter holiday this cottage was brilliant as it was so full of character. The owner made us very welcome. We would definitely go back.
Mrs Edwards, Abingdon, March 2013
A warm welcome form the owners when we arrived. The village was quiet, peaceful, brilliant, just what I like. The open fire place was toasty and hot.
