    This was our third stay and we have already booked for next year too!! Beautiful views (even in the rain) but this location is perfect for us to spend our sewing week away - no interruptions, peace & quiet, but close enough to town if we want to go out to restaurants etc. Can't recommend highly enough - thank you

    The cottage is perfect extremely well equipped, a home from home, superb views from all windows,, it’s wonderful conversion. I was taken ill on our last night and joy and Andrew couldn’t do enough to help me, messaged me the next morning to ask how I was,told me not to worry or rush on departure day, also aloud my husband to leave his van there for a couple of days as he had to come a and drive me home.

  • "The location, quality and cleanliness of the property was wonderful and the views to die for."

    It was great to have a field area next door to throw a ball for our dog in the evening with public footpaths so close. The welcome pack was very welcome. However the beds were very uncomfortable which triggered our decision to come home early plus cottage was very hot with locked themostats so could not decrease the temperate. Had to open doors and windows ... A suggest would to have a move information of the local area in the folder such as places to walk dogs and dog friendly eating places. Our recommendation was Anne of Cleves however needs booking as a small place and dog friendly. Melton Country Park is great for walking the dog. Plus for parking in the area recommend downloading the PaybyPhone App and have it set up.

    Most of what we needed was provided, the only downside (as a very personal comment) was the settees were rather low and therefore uncomfortable also a larger mirror in the back bedroom would be most useful. But overall a 5 star cottage and would happily return, the enclosed garden was perfect for our dogs.

  • "Teal Cottage is a lovely place to stay."

    Initially struggled to find it as it is tucked away behind the owners property down a long drive off a quiet country lane. Very peaceful and surrounded by local fields. However, not very far from Melton Mowbray at all. The cottage is beautifully decorated - one of 2 barn conversions. Semi detached with its own small garden and enough parking. Modern, very clean and well equipped. Main living area is open plan and very comfortable. Useful entrance hall for muddy boots and coats etc., and w.c. Welcome basket very nice. Owners very helpful. Beds also very comfortable. Both bedtooms have an en suite. The en suite bath, shower rooms are not that big but adequate. (So anyone with mobility issues or who needs a chair in the room might struggle as there is limited space). We had a fabulous stay visiting surrounding local country parks with our dog, Melton Mowbray and the Space Centre in Leicester. Yes we would recommend Teal Cottage. It is a little gem. Only thing that could have improved our stay: softer and fluffy towels. The ones we were provided with were a bit scratchy and hard. Generally, one of the nicer properties we have stayed in.

If you are not used to it, you are surrounded by working farm fields and they may be using muck to fertilise the soil. This can cause a pungent odour!
