    It is modern and spacious and well equipped. It is located in a good position to explore the area, whilst being on the outskirts of Melton Mowbray so near restaurants and shops. A generous welcome pack was provided which we appreciated. Thank you to Joy and Andrew for making us feel welcome.

  • "Our third stay and still as clean, welcoming and tranquil as the first time."

    Access to numerous way marked walks from the doorstep. Beautiful views. Owner on hand but not at all intrusive. Quality of the property, the furnishings, fittings, beds, showers , heating, lighting, cooking facilities, washing machine, dishwasher, bins, fully enclosed garden with furniture all unusually high and very welcome. If you like peace and quiet and lovely walks this is an opportunity to leave the car abandoned for entire stay, walk to Kirby Bellars, Burton Lazars, Burrough Hill etc. Try ‘10 circular walks in and around Melton Mowbray’ a little green book available online costs less than a fiver, having said that on an earlier visit we did visit The Space Centre, Melton town, Melton country park, Foxton Locks, farm shop & cafe, theres plenty to visit if you are not walkers too.

    Teal cottage is a lovely conversation of an old barn with all the amenities you would want for a perfect stay. Very clean, tidy and airy with all modern appliances. The welcome packs for us and our dog were amazing. Joy and Andrew were exceptionally good hosts and made us feel very welcome. The fully fenced garden for our dog was a real bonus. Lots of local walks and lovely dog friendly country pubs. Looking forward to our return visit.

  • "Beautiful barn conversion."

    Very clean and tidy. Lovely welcome pack from the owner. Situated in working farm land so expect farm traffic and some smells. Air fresheners are provided by the owners. Lovely views and walks. Dogs very welcome and catered for. Just about wheelchair friendly. Bathrooms a bit tight for the wheelchair. Lip on doors ok, I think the owner has a ramp if required. We managed the door threshold without the ramp.

  • "Lovely barn conversion."

    If you are using a wheelchair, there is a small step over the threshold of the door. The bathrooms are tight if not impossible for a wheelchair. My wife could manage as she can transfer and use crutches for small distances. The owner has ramps if required. Lovely welcome pack when we arrived. Note. 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! I wondered why there was an auto air freshener in the hallway. This only happens a couple of times a year. Fantastic walks close buy. Shops and takeaway food within a short distance.
