    The property was very comfortable with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Cake and Prosecco as a welcome pack. What more could you want? The owners Stewart and Anne were very accommodating if we needed anything and made us feel very welcome. I would highly recommend this property.

    A lovely touch was the provision of a lovely cake with milk and Prosecco in the fridge. Tea bags and coffee and were also provided together with all the necessary utensils you would need for producing your own meals. The hot tub was kept scrupulously clean by Stewart and the chemicals were checked on a daily basis. The setting is peaceful and quiet a fabulous place for a relaxing break. Lots of places to visit in the surrounding area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return at some point. Thank you again Anne and Stewart.

  • "We had a wonderful stay thank you."

    Our second visit having stayed last year and loving it for the peaceful location, the hot tub and being a stones throw away from great family days out and great pub food (The Flyford was excellent!) Stuart and Anne are warm and welcoming hosts. A few new additions were found this year by our children: a huge box of toys which they loved! The books and games are great and a new shower mat, (the old one had seen better days). One change I would ask, is that blackout blinds are put in the twin bedroom. The current blinds are very light and don’t block out any of the light at all, with August sunshine blasting in the bedroom from 5am both our children were wide awake and unable to go back to sleep. We fixed this by buying temporary paper blackout blinds from Dunelm that were propped behind the existing blinds and removed when we vacated. But this would certainly be a welcome permanent addition if we were to stay again. We have highly recommended this holiday home to many of our friends! Thanks again.

    It was lovely to see you all again and we're pleased you had another enjoyable stay with us. We're really sorry about the blackout blinds problem upstairs. We will replace these - in our annual winter revamp - this is not something we had thought about before. Thank you for the really constructive feedback and also for all your kind comments. Very best wishes Anne and Stewart Property Owner

    We visited with our older mother who stayed in the upstairs room (walk in shower), and we stayed in the downstairs room (also walk in shower) with patio door out to the hot tub. Sunny sitting room, and very well equipped kitchen diner, even a dishwasher, washer and dryer. The hosts and their dog were lovely and had prepared a fantastic list of places to eat, walk, and visit. Easy to get to lots of places from here, but very peaceful and quiet.

  • "This is a lovely home in a very quite location."

    The garden is massive, due to the time of year, we didn't make the most of this but this would be a great extra space in the summer. The owners live on site and were very helpful, but left us to do our own thing, not bothering is all the time. We really enjoyed our short stay here. My only minor grumble is the hob is only two rings not four. Which is a bit of an issue if your group is a mix of vegetarian and non vegetarian and you need to do separate meals for each. It is also worth noting that the freezer is only a small compartment in the fridge, not a full size freezer. These are minor moans, otherwise I would give this a 10 out of 10.

    Thank you Garry for your feedback. We're pleased you liked Buttercups and enjoyed your stay with us. We were however surprised about your "minor grumbles" In the description of our property it does state clearly that Buttercups has a two ring hob and also mentions that there is a fridge but does not state anywhere that the cottage has a freezer. Other guests have contacted us prior to arrival re the capacity of the compartment in the fridge and we have stored larger frozen items in our freezer if this is required. We feel your comments highlight the importance of guests reading the information about a property very carefully and clarifying any uncertainties before booking so that they are sure the facilities fully meet their needs and they do not experience the problems you describe. We are happy to answer any queries and we do our utmost to ensure guests enjoy their time with us. Anne and Stewart Property Owner

    There was milk and Prosecco in the fridge and a delicious cake on the table. We did not use the hot tub. The upper bedroom area and shower room certainly looked comfortable and practical but we lived on the ground floor. The kitchen and the ground floor bedroom are very large as is the huge and comfortable bed. The shower is spacious. The sitting room is cosy and well equipped with card and board games for all ages. The are views of the garden from the sitting room and the bedroom and plenty of areas to sit out /BBQ. The field and its flock of sheep entertain from the kitchen window. The appliances worked well and the heating is very controllable via the thermostat. The internet was dependable. This is a fantastic property and certainly on our list for future visits.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Buttercups with our 2 young children thank you."

    The property is spacious with the most beautiful private garden. Fields all around, we enjoyed the sheep next door, the birds and star gazing at night. The hot tub was in daily use: morning, afternoon and night and we really appreciated the sensitive twice daily visits from Stuart to keep it topped up with water and check the chemicals. We also loved that it wasn’t too hot and the children could enjoy it too and they absolutely loved it. The kitchen was great, really well stocked, with the nice little snug lounge after a busy day. We loved all the care that had been taken in the childrens books available (our 2 read everything) the games and information packs. There are so many places to visit within short drives, you’re spoilt for choice, it really is a great location for historic towns, national trust houses and gardens, castles (Eastnor Castle was a favourite, fantastic for families with rope swings on every tall tree on the woodland walk!) and farms. We could go on. We will highly recommend this lovely place and can see why it’s booked up. Many thanks again and we look forward to booking again in the future.

    It has all the amenities that you would expect and some additional ones. The hot tub was very welcome after a day's sightseeing; it was sparklingly clean and is checked twice daily by the owners as well as being emptied and cleaned after each guest. The downstairs shower is a long walk-in one, and both are very powerful with consistent temperatures. The garden is huge, not something you normally get, and there is sun all day long, outside the downstairs bedroom from first thing and round the side in the evening. Listen out for the rook display each evening! As previous reviews have said, the owners (and dog) are lovely and very friendly, but not intrusive. The welcome cake and prosecco were a very nice touch. All in all a lovely stay. We will be back when next in this area.

    They did everything they could to make our holiday perfect. Cake and bubbly, milk, coffee & tea for us on arrival and they even had the place ready early for us as the previous occupants had left before time. Lovely decor throughout, very spacious and everything we needed for our break away, including booklets of local places of interest, walks and eateries. With 3 pubs within walking distance and lots of fabulous places to visit within a short drive the cottage is perfectly placed. A shame we could only stay 4 nights as there was so much more to see. The icing on the cake here is the beautifully large garden and hot tub to view the stars at night and to watch the rabbits and sheep in the daytime. You certainly can’t top having a Tardis too.
