Previous visitors' comments about Markington Grange Cottage:
Whats not to like? The area, cottage and weather made it a lovely week. Thank you! All the little extras the owner had left in the cottage including bottle of wine were very nice, not all cottages do that.
Mr Miles, Downham Market, May 2013
Overall very comfortable, would visit again.
Mr Blackmore, Rotherham, May 2013
A lovely cottage, comfortable, warm and cozy. We liked the peace and quiet and had time to re-charge batteries.
Owners had provided basic provisions such as bread and butter and things like cling film, foil, cooking oil etc which was a big help.
Mrs Falder, Harpenden, April 2013
Everything that we needed was supplied overall very pleased with our stay.
