  • "The property was comfortable and there were all the facilities you need."

    I would book this location again.

  • "This is our second stay in The Cygnet, Haselbury is a lovely village and a great base for exploring the area and is just 25 minutes from the coast."

    This is a lovely, cosy cottage, complete with a woodburner which we didn't need to use. We tended to eat our evening meals in the cottage, cooking in the kitchen, which was perfect. The off street parking is a real asset. All in all we had a really enjoyable stay at The Cygnet and hope to return some time.

  • "Not very impressed with owner, tried to ring her twice on day before we left-no reply."

    Tried again day of arrival when we near house ,still no answer. It was 4pm and we couldn't go in until 5pm . I was worried so we went to cottage no one there.So knocked on owners door, she answered saying "I've told you not to come before 5pm". As I had never spoken to her before, I was rather annoyed at the manner in which she spoke to me. It turned out she had spoken to another client and thought it was me. She did apologise but I was not impressed. There was no welcome gift which we had been spoilt with at previous cottages. I n fact she did not speak to us again although we saw her several times. The inside was clean but the outside was dirty. windows looked as if never been cleaned. Definitely wouldn't`t recomend it.

  • "A delightful little cottage in a beautiful village."

    Both bedrooms overlook the garden at the back and are quiet. Different people have different ideas about what constitutes a comfortable bed. We found the beds comfortable. There is plenty to do in the area. The cottage has strong WiFi.
