  • "Just about perfect!"

    If you want to chill out then this is the place. We were at the cottage in the last week of winter so hardly anyone about which suits us. No idea how busy the area would be in summer with a caravan park at the bottom of the hill.

  • "Was a great weekend and the hottub was lovely."

    We struggled to get hot water for a bath on the first night so we had showers instead. We also ran out of fire lighter for the fire so more fire lighter per stay would be helpful. Other than that, the two hosts were both lovely and very helpful. The location of the house was very nice and nothing but fields around us, very quiet and relaxing! Would definately stay again.

  • "This is an excellent holiday cottage which is fully equipped with everything you would need."

    The log burning fire is excellent and the host even had logs burning on arrival. The hot tub is a lovely addition too, which we used every evening on our three night stay. In these uncertain times, this cottage was the perfect getaway for me and my family and I would 100% recommend to anyone looking for a staycation. Finally, the hosts were lovely and very accommodating and the sea view is beautiful especially in the morning looking from the kitchen window.

  • "The cottage is amazing."

    It is really a home away from home. We were really blown away when we arrived. Janice and Derek were so welcoming and friendly! The living area is so comfortable and homely. The TV has Netflix. There is a log burning fire with logs and kindling provided. A large corner sofa and single chair. There are board games in the cupboard to play. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need including a dishwasher. The main bathroom has a bath with shower over it. There are also 2 en-suite shower rooms. The beds are comfortable and both bedrooms have lots of storage. The hot tub is amazing and takes this from being amazing to outstanding. Sitting outside in the hot tub with just the moonlight and sound of the sea in the nearby bay cannot be described. It is such a quiet place set back from any busy main roads or artificial street lights so you can really enjoy the peace and quiet. I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough. Thank you Janice and Derek for everything. We cannot wait to rebook another trip. Amanda & Mark

    The cottage is great for self catering (the only thing it lacks is a tumble dryer) . It is so peaceful there, all that we could hear all week was the sea in the distance and the little birds. The owners are a wonderful couple & very knowledgeable about the area . Longfourth Farm Cottage is just PERFECTION. One of the best ones that we have stayed in, it's truly a 5* cottage, its STUNNING. Thank you for our wonderful stay & we hope to return one day.

  • "Where to start?"

    ! Longforth Farm Cottage is the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and take a moment to relax! The hosts were incredibly welcoming (including a lovely bottle of bubbles in the fridge when we arrived!) and throughout the week they were just at the end of a message if you had an queries. Janice was on hand with lots of tips and hints for places to visit with a toddler (especially on the rainy days!). The cottage is decorated and furnished to such a high standard yet it still feels like a home from home; cosy, warm and welcoming. The open fire was perfect at the end of our blustery days exploring the local beaches and forest park...and the hot tub is just an added bonus under the stars and with views down to the sea; what more could you want! :-) Cannot recommend this place enough and we cannot wait to return!

    Everything was of the highest standard. The beds were so comfy. There's everything you could possibly need for a week away. The owners were lovely and left a bottle of bubbly in the fridge for when we arrived. The pub is 10 minutes walk away just off the beach and there's plenty of forestry commission woodland walks if you want to get out in the fresh air. The hot tub is great after a day out. We loved it so much we've booked again already! I would highly recommend this cottage if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and relax.

    Janice is a lovely person who was there if needed. The cottage is beautifully situated and very well equipped. Beds are comfortable, showers great. The only downside for us was we found the living room a bit dark and would have liked to be able to sit in there and see the view as the weather wasn’t nice enough for us to sit out, but the window was too high! Minor thing really. Could have done with some info on nearest doctor, chemist etc as we had our 93 year old mum with us, but fortunately weren’t needed. We had a lovely time exploring the area and coming home relaxing in the excellent hot tub.

    Derek and Janice went out of their way to help make our stay perfect. The cottage is full of wonderful little touches which exceeded our expectations.

Being able to then retreat inside to sit in front of the log burner and warm up was perfect. We can’t wait to book our next trip!
