  • "Lovely cottage - very clean, comfortable and thoughtfully-equipped, with a generous outdoor space."

    Beautiful open outlook across fields with grazing horses, donkeys and guineafowl, and fascinating local history. The friendly owners made us feel very much at home, and for us it was a perfect base for exploring the nature reserves of the Brecks.

  • "Our second visit to Romulus."

    The owners Rachel and Dudley are always friendly and helpfull with a continuous supply of fresh eggs every day... if you asked for them. The views from the cottage are amazing to wake up to 3 horses and the 3 donkeys grazing was wonderful. St Ethelberts Church in the distance is a nice place to walk too. One tiny issue double bed although comfortable is a bit on the low side getting out for the older pearson may be issue ! Angel public house near by is nice pub to call into. Also recommend is C.J. Barker Butchers in East Harling just down the road...Best sausages ever...

    Rachael and Dudley, what can we say. They were the perfect owners, on hand to help with advice on whatever we needed. There was of a pub within walking distance. Plenty of places to visit and the weather was kind. I would definitely recommend their property. (I most certainly left a piece of my heart there)... ❤️
