  • "We really enjoyed our stay and would not think twice about staying again."

    Reviewed by DavidOct 2021

  • "Great location for visiting National Trust houses and doing the Black & White Trail of villages."

    Well equipped with lovely old blue & white china. Great use of small space, warm and comfortable. Very friendly hosts and entertaining chickens! The only drawback is the limited amount of hot water for the shower that only gives a short run, so you need to be quick. All in all, a great value place to which we hope to return

  • "On the slightly negative side - the sofas were a bit uncomfortable, maybe the sofas need replacing I think, but not so bad I'd walk away or recommend not using the cabin."

    The shower is difficult as it runs out of water quite quickly, it's just enough for one. Then you'd have to wait a little while I guess for two (I was on my own so just a very minor inconvenience). ON the positive - It was well equipped and the bed very comfy - I slept very well. it's a great location in a beautiful part of the world and I enjoyed my very relaxing stay. I was surprised it had a TV and DVD with a nice selection of DVDs (and books too). Plenty of pots, pans, cutlery, plates, mugs, glasses etc. WiFi was very good. Cell phone coverage zero (Vodafone) but the wificall from Vodafone worked perfectly. For two it's comfortable, might be a bit cramped with any more, but there is a sofa bed n the living room area. I'd use again.

  • "A charming little hut in a lovely setting."

    We stayed as a family of 4 but I think it would be more comfortable accommodation for two people. The accommodation really could benefit from a new sofa and mattress as both were hard and uncomfortable resulting in poor nights sleep. Luckily the weather was amazing and the secret garden to the side was a little oasis. The couple who run it are wonderful and really couldn't have done enough for us. I should also say they were incredibly tolerant of our children using their garden as the cabin is metres from their house.

    The cabin itself was very well equipped and so comfortable it was a home from home. From booking the holiday to collecting the keys from the owner and then handing the keys back the whole experience was one of ease and comfort. Thank you for making my weeks holiday a memorable and enjoyable one.

  • "We would recommend the cottage to other people."

    The only reason we're not going back is because we like to try other places. The cottage was very homely. Our only negative comments were the mattress was very hard and we both had sore backs in the morning. Also the water heater only heated enough water for a brief shower but it was adequate. The owners kindly put £5 in the electricity meter for us which takes £1 coins. We only needed to feed £2 into the meter towards the end of the week. The owners also kindly left us 4 fresh eggs from their white Bantam chicken which were delicious. We loved the chickens and the view from the kitchen window. The small court yard garden off the patio was also really nice and we enjoyed watching the birds on the feeder. Great bolt hole for a relaxing break of 5 nights with peace and quiet to read and chill out. Really good access to some stunning surrounding countryside walks and pretty traditional medieval English towns if you have a car. Very happy!

  • "Good accommodation, helpful owners, excellent setting."

    The owners extremely welcoming and helpful, they managed to leave us to ourselves even though the Cabin was so close to their own house. They said we could use the garden as our own which was great, although we had our own private area. They provided everything we could need on holiday, including washing line and pegs. We plan to return and explore even more of the area from what proved to be a great base.

    We enjoyed the peace and quiet surroundings around us. The kids enjoyed the nature and the secret garden attached to the cottage with our regular barbecues. They also had the chance to have some swimming lessons at the leisure centre. A lot to see and explore, villages that you can visit while planning your circular walks. Horse riding and biking facilities close by. Simply a great place to relax and enjoy nature.

    Fresh eggs, milk, orange juice and a huge vase of flowers awaited us on arrival. There was spare toothbrushes etc. in the bathroom. I invited my parents and sister over for supper one evening and we found all the dishes and plates we needed to put on a buffet type spread for them too. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a cottage fitted out as a home from home rather than with the usual cheap and cheerful, sterile and basic minimum one tends to get in a holiday cottage.
