  • "The cottage was excellent with ask the facilities we needed to cook and enjoy ourselves for the week we were staying."

    Carolyn was very welcoming and made us feel at home. Even though the road is right next to the property you don't be put off it is very quiet inside and watching the comings and goings from the comfortable sofa is a daily treat. We would definitely return with easy access to Melton Mowbray this is one of the best properties we have stayed at off this website.

    Thank you for this feedback, it is good to hear that the roadside position wasn't an issue. Nice to hear that you would return. Property Owner
