    “We booked Englewood Cottage at short notice so didn't have a great deal of choice but were delighted with the cottage - a real little gem.”

    I was glad I knew about the garden being across a little alley way in advance - it helped plan things with the dogs but it really wasn't a problem. And the access from the bottom of the garden to the stream was delightful. The cottage was very attractive internally - a lovely 4 poster bed in the large master bedroom - probably the comfiest bed I've ever had in a holiday let.

    I was glad I knew about the garden being across a little alley way in advance - it helped plan things with the dogs but it really wasn't a problem. And the access from the bottom of the garden to the stream was delightful. The cottage was very attractive internally - a lovely 4 poster bed in the large master bedroom - probably the comfiest bed I've ever had in a holiday let. We didn't use the twin bedroom but it was also large and airy. The kitchen was remarkably well equipped (I don't have 4 different choices of pudding bowl at home!!). And the living room was comfortable and cosy. Lovely to have the stove available but the storage heater kept us plenty warm enough so we didn't light the fire although coal was available had we wanted to. We were concerned that parking in the road would be problematic in a terrace of houses but it wasn't at all - we were out every day and were always able to park right outside the house. Cannot find anything that could have been improved. Thoroughly recommended.
