The cottage is situated on a working farm and is very peaceful.

Mrs Adcock, Poole, March 2014

The cottage has a very homely feel. I liked the fact that the cottage is on a working farm, so you do not feel totally isolated, yet you can enjoy your privacy.

Mrs Penman, Harrow, December 2013

Loved our stay, our first impressions were that we could live in the property forever!

Mr Weedon, Taunton, November 2013

A lovely Cottage in a great village in Shropshire. Just like a home from home.

Mrs Townley, Trowbridge, September 2013

Very cosy cottage to come home to. Scenery beautiful. Plenty of good places to eat.

Mr Allen, Barnstaple, September 2013

The accommodation was comfortable, well equipped with great attention to detail. The owners had a genuine warmth and friendliness. The location within a pretty village with access to countryside public footpaths and local places of interest is very good. An excellent two week rental. Highly recommended.

Mrs Chambers, June 2013

A very good cottage, well thought out and finished to a very high standard of décor.

Mr Watson, Newcastle upon Tyne, May 2013

We enjoyed the peaceful location in the beautiful countryside yet easy to go north, south, east or west to see more of the area. We loved the comfort and cosiness of the cottage which thoroughly deserves all the commendations previous users have given. Certainly the best cottage we have stayed in.

Mrs Dove, Fleet, May 2013

Cozy well maintained property. Excellent friendly hosts.

Mr Hudson, High Peak, April 2013

A very relaxing, well-appointed base for any planned tours or trips.
