Ideal place to stay, warm and comfortable, and well equipped. Helpful owner.

Mrs Horn, Orpington, October 2013

The cottage was just lovely, very well equipped, made for an easy relaxing week. Already recommended to some friends, and will probably go back. The owners were just delightful!

Mrs Jones, Beaminster, September 2013

Great cottage. Good location for getting around. Very restful garden.

Mr Scutt, Petworth, August 2013

The owners have thought of everything. I wasn't expecting to find tea, coffee, washing up liquid as all those little annoying things that you need to pack for a self catering holiday had been considered and supplied. The accommodation was extremely comfortable and the shower amazing. The owners were very accommodating towards our puppy and children and use of the owners garden was very welcome.
