Previous visitors' comments about East Cottage:
The cottage was first class, could not fault it in any way. The location was brilliant, close to all amenities and the outlook was lovely. We were 6 adults and we all had an excellent time. The cottage was lovely, it was warm and felt friendly. The owners came to check if everything was ok and it was lovely they took the time to come and see us. The little touches made all the difference, the biscuits went down a treat!

The cottage was a joy to stay in. We had a very comfortable stay in this very cosy cottage. A very helpful folder was also provided by the owners who have done a superb job all round.

Everything was very easy to arrange, a lovely welcome from the owners. We couldn't really have asked for anything more.
Rev Hearson, Rushden, February 2013
The cottage was well appointed and felt very comfortable and well thought out. I could imagine myself living there which is a sure sign that I particularly like a holiday accommodation. There was lots of space for two couples and two teenage children to stay without feeling on top of each other. The area was lovely with lots of walking and good pubs on the doorstep as well as nice towns to visit. A great way to spend the Christmas week.
