    • “Idyllic”

    • “This is a gorgeous, cosy cottage in the middle of beautiful countryside. It has all the facilities you could possibly need and the owners are dedicated to ensuring the stay goes smoothly. The location is rural but with good access to lovely towns and Alton Towers. The teenagers missed the WiFi but they thoroughly enjoyed themselves anyway!”

    • “Fantastic Cottage and a very enjoyable stay.”

    • “We were very impressed with the cottage, the kitchen was well equipped and the lounge was warm and comfortable. The cottage itself was isolated which was great for us but with no local shops, you would need a car. We stayed there with friends and there was plenty of parking for two cars and more and plenty of room for four adults in the cottage. I have stayed in many holiday cottages over the years but this one has to be one of the best ever. If there was a tiny fault it was picking up a phone signal but bearing in mind the location, this was to be expected. Couldn't fault it in any other way.”

    • “I travelled to Marsh Cottage in August with my husband and son. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend this cottage. It was so peaceful and had everything we needed. The cottage was spotless and the fresh flowers was a lovely touch. We were left tea/coffee milk and biscuits. We picked this cottage as it was close to Alton Towers and we are so glad we did.”

    • “We loved the location of the property, isolated yet near civilisation for shopping etc. We loved the views from the windows, the house had 'personality.' We found the heating to be super efficient too and were cosy all the time. The utility room was a bonus with the extra toilet downstairs. There are plenty of interesting places to visit in the immediate vicinity.”

    Mr Wilson, Great Yarmouth, September 2015

    Mr Parrott, Godalming, August 2014

    • “The flowers on the kitchen table were a very welcoming touch as was the milk in the fridge and the packets of biscuits. We had a long journey and although we'd brought some groceries with us we didn't have any milk so it saved us having to go out again. Marsh Cottage was welcoming and very clean and tidy - a home from home which was lovely.”

    Mrs Challis, Woodbridge, July 2014

    • “Quiet location. Good size garden. Comfortable beds. Well equipped house. Plenty to see and do in the area. 15 minute drive to Alton Towers.”

    Mr Johnston, Kilmarnock, June 2014
