  • "Good family space but tired, any problems were deal with promptly"

  • "In a good location with adequate parking."

    Property light & warm, but rather tired & out of date by modern standards: some items eg radiators, gas cooker, dishwasher, not fully functioning.

  • "Perfect for our family Christmas."

    Drying room well used and much appreciated as exceptionally wet week. Selection of large pans and oven trays were also appreciated, perfect for cooking for our hungry family. We certainly needed both ovens and the warming oven was a bonus. Plenty of storage and chilling space. House was well heated and hot water plentiful. Thank you for the decorations, crackers and laid table for our first evening.

  • "Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful cottage."

    There were 20 of us who came from London. The vast space of the property, cleanliness, abundant bathrooms and proximity to many interesting locations made it a very good accommodation indeed. There was a superb place to view the sunset only 2 minutes' drive. We will definitely come back again and recommend others to stay here.
