The kitchen was very well equipped with everything that anyone could ever need, and the quality of the kitchenware is first class, we cooked a full Christmas dinner with no problems at all. The surrounding gardens and outdoor space is lovely, the cottage is quite remote but we do like that, very quiet. The owners were very welcoming and helpful but left you alone to enjoy your holiday. The cottage is very nicely furnished, decorated and very warm with a nice shower. The bed and pillows were comfortable, and the towels were soft and fluffy with a good array. The outside veranda was great, and I can imagine perfect on a nice summers evening! This is a lovely cottage, and we did enjoy our stay.

It was warm and welcoming, and the attention to detail was impressive. Everything you needed was there, it could not have been better!

Mr Bateman, Ashford, November 2013

Fabulous cottage with really tasteful interior décor, very peaceful location, but still fabulous base for great days out.

Mrs Nast, Milton Keynes, September 2013

This was a beautifully presented cottage with lots of extras.
