Mr Marsden, Dereham, February 2013
The cottage was absolutely lovely. Perfect location for getting away from it all. Everything was to a high standard and the owners couldn't have been more helpful. Will definitely be re-visiting.

This is a beautiful cottage which we will return to whenever we can. Beautifully furnished with a log burner to make for cosy nights in. Great location too...perfect for exploring the Long Mynd, Shrewsbury and the Welsh borders. Owners exceptionally helpful.
Mrs Avery, Great Yarmouth, October 2012
I was looking for peace and quiet and a complete rest, which was exactly what I got. The cottage was lovely and comfortable in really pretty, well kept surroundings. I would certainly book again and recommend the cottage to family and friends.
