    Comfortable bed and well equipped kitchen. Beautiful outdoor space and secure car parking. Attentive and helpful owners. Beautiful area with village shop and several inns near by. A great centre for exploring far and near. I highly recommend it.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Tiny Willow."

    Well equipped and very cosy . One small thing. We drove past the entrance a couple of times and missed it. Perhaps a slightly larger sign on the gate would help.

    The outside space is a sun trap and is so quiet and relaxing, a good antidote to the fast pace of modern life. Suzy and Rob perfect hosts, friendly and helpful, seems like nothing is too much trouble to help provide the best for your stay.

  • "Lola and I had a lovely, chilled stay here over Christmas, which was very much needed."

    The location is great as it’s not too far from amenities, yet basically in the middle of nowhere. The property has everything you need for a cosy stay. The pictures don’t quite do it the justice it deserves. I would highly recommend this little retreat.

    Everything one might need for a holiday in the country all enclosed in a well-designed, beautifully decorated and appointed property. Surrounded by open fields and interesting walks, it is a place to relax and enjoy a peaceful few days yet it is also within easy reach of historic towns and villages. It is also truly dog friendly!

    It’s small and yet has everything. So happy. Owners, Suzy and Rob can’t do enough for you which is great, without being intrusive, and on arrival there were wild flowers in a vase, a lovely bottle of wine and some dog treats. Highly recommended and would return for another holiday.

  • "Great little cabin."

    It was very comfortable and a nice place to relax in the evening after a day out exploring the area. Everything was clean and in good condition. There was a small fenced private garden for our dog to enjoy (we could have as well, but it was a little cold in the evenings still). The cabin is in a nice quiet location, and the driveway is gated. Finally, the owner Suzy was great. She answered every question we had before we got there and checked on us while we were there to ensure everything was going good. Even though we never actually met in person on this visit, we knew she would have fixed any issue that may have come up. This was a great stay and we would definitely stay again.
