Guest Reviews


    • “Loved the views from the cottage, brilliant garden for our dog, and the style in which the cottage was presented was just right, it was cottagey, but modern and we felt at home immediately. The owners next door were friendly but unobtrusive. The location was excellent.”

    Mrs Hope, Ipswich, July 2014

    • “The location was idyllic, very peaceful, plenty of walking and cycling from the doorstep. We have two dogs and as stated the garden was very large and fully enclosed which was ideal. The owners were very friendly and on hand if needed. We would thoroughly recommend this property and hope to return ourselves.”

    Mr Carter, Wolverhampton, June 2014

    • “We both needed to get away from it all and relax. The property was superb - just what we needed. We cannot begin to describe the views from the lounge - they were breathtaking. We are definitely returning.”

    Mrs Hayward, Ramsgate, March 2014

    • “Lovely cosy cottage with fantastic views.”
