A peaceful, serene setting and wonderful countryside right outside your doorstep! The wonderful, cute, quaint cottage, which was just perfect for all the family, made it hard for us to leave it in order to explore our surroundings! From the master bedroom in particular, the views were just picture postcard - and we did not have to even get out of bed to see them! Everything was just perfect, a very peaceful, enjoyable week.

Mrs Parr, Romford, February 2014

The cottage was in a lovely place, with lots of interesting places within easy reach . It was very clean, comfortable, peaceful, quiet, warm and relaxing. The interior of the cottage with all it's beams and layout was brilliant as we really like old fashioned styles like this. We were impressed with the large bedroom, the best we have slept in. The owners of the cottage were very nice and helpful and we appreciated the bottle of wine and biscuits they gave us. We would highly recommend it to anybody, and hope to stay again. Thank you for a very pleasant stay at their cottage.

Mr Brooks, Nuneaton, February 2014

The location was perfect. Our cottage delightful especially the log burning stove. Very cosy indeed. It was spotlessly clean. The owners who lived next door could not have been more helpful if and when required.

Mrs Laidlaw, Jedburgh, December 2013

This was a lovely house; cosy and nicely furnished. Very comfortable beds. The bad weather did not stop us having a great weekend. The owners were really nice, being helpful without being intrusive. Some great villages nearby with good 'olde english -style' pubs - and very nice food. Near to lovely countryside, and lots of places to visit. We would like to come back.
