  • "We enjoyed our week at Pipstrelle Cottage, it was well equipped and cosy."

    Lovely views from the bathroom as others have mentioned, and the garden was a real sun trap, where children can watch the cows and tractors in the nearby fields, however a missing fence panel meant we were frequently fetching our 1 year old from the neighbour's gardens. We did struggle with water pressure and temperature control in the shower. Note that 4G signal is very weak on Three, but there is a strong Vodafone signal. Overall we had a pleasant experience and would recommend it to others.

  • "My twelve year old daughter and I loved our stay at Pipstrelle Cottage."

    We were pleasantly surprised to find the milk and wine in the fridge on arrival and fresh local eggs on the counter. These extras area a really nice touch. The cottage is perfectly equipped and has everything you might need as well as essentials if you had forgotten the basics. The location is lovely, very peaceful and brilliant to be able to connect with nature on the doorstep. My daughter was delighted to be surrounded by cows each day! The garden is a great sun trap and the added bonus of being able to hang out washing using the washing machine in the cottage was much appreciated. This cottage exceeded my daughter and my expectations and we were sad to have to leave.
